As part of Pacific Science Center's 50th anniversary celebrations, we are busy planning six-months of exciting community-focused events and activities. Visit this page in the weeks and months to come as new programs and details are announced or subscribe to our weekly newsletter.

Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs -- May 24, 2012-January 6, 2013

Arguably the grandest and most celebrated exhibition in the world, this is the last time these treasured artifacts will be on display in North America. Many remember the King Tut exhibition that traveled to Seattle in the late 1970s, attracting more than one million guests and really defining a blockbuster exhibition. At more than twice the size of the 1970's exhibition, the new show includes more than 100 objects from the tomb of King Tut and other ancient sites spanning 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian history. The exhibition opens May 24, 2012 and will run through January 6, 2013. Learn More

Opening during the celebration of Pacific Science Center's 50th anniversary, this new 7,000 square foot permanent exhibit will have the goal of educating, encouraging and empowering guests to make everyday choices that improve their health and wellness. The core of the exhibit's approach is to engage guests in fun, hands-on activities that will help them understand the concept of wellness, which Pacific Science Center defines as more than health or the absence of disease; it is a constant push toward bettering and maintaining one's quality of life.
