Space Foundation Discovery Center

The Space Foundation Discovery Center is the region's first and only space, science and technology attraction. It is an interactive, museum-quality destination that advances space-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (S-STEM) in the exciting context of space exploration, development and utilization. 

The Discovery Center features the El Pomar Space Gallery, displaying the Space Foundation's collection of space artifacts. The Discovery Center is also home to our Lockheed Martin Space Education Center and the Northrop Grumman Science Center, featuring Science On a Sphere® and classroom/laboratory facilities for PreK through graduate-level courses, educator professional development, educational multimedia events and presentations for the general public.

The Space Foundation Discovery Center is the location for our Sphere SOS-based courses and a destination for class/youth group field trips and special programs.

Expansion plans for the future include a state-of-the-art interactive teaching auditorium and a Space Technology Hall of Fame®.
