We’ve created fun and safe new experiences

Our team has worked hard to create fun new COVID-safe experiences. For everyone’s safety, some exhibitions will be adjusted or temporarily closed. Our planetarium will be open at reduced capacity.

We’ve increased daily disinfecting and sanitizing protocols

There will be special attention paid to highly trafficked areas and high-touch surfaces throughout the building and its exhibits. We also have hand sanitizer stations readily available throughout the building.

reopen icon_air.png

We've improved air quality in the building

LSC is a 300,000-square-foot facility with large open rooms. All of the air filters have been changed and upgraded to a quality exceeding the CDC recommendation. We’ve also optimized our air handling system and increased its run times to allow for significantly more air exchanges, bringing more fresh air from outside into the facility more often throughout the day.

reopen icon_capacity.png

We're limiting total capacity in the building

We’re limiting total capacity to help guests maintain distance. We ask that you please purchase tickets online in advance, as many of our time slots and theater shows sell out fast.
