The Inside Scoop

Chabot’s full dome Planetarium features Northern California’s only Zeiss Universarium star projector that can illuminate 9000 stars and celestial objects as well as a digital sky projector.


NASA is landing in Oakland! A new partnership between NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley and Chabot Space & Science Center is now underway. Anchoring the partnership, a new visitor center for Ames will provide an immersive, dynamic STEAM environment called The NASA Experience. 

As development is underway on The NASA Experience, we will continue to learn and test new offerings together leading up to the November opening. Throughout the development process, Chabot Space & Science Center will offer opportunities for our community to prototype and preview new experiences along the way.
