We are super bummed to report that the Chabot Space & Science Center will be extending its closure to November 2021. Buried deep inside Oakland’s Redwood Regional Park, we hope this gem of a place is only hibernating.

Chabot Space & Science plans to use the time to create exceptional experiences for our members virtually and outdoors while preparing for an exciting reopening with new programs and exhibitions.

Learning outdoors: The Chabot team is creating learning opportunities for small groups in the outdoor spaces, including the Courtyard, Observation Deck and surrounding areas. We’ll update this message when we know more.
Virtual learning: Chabot Space & Science Center will continue to provide exclusive virtual STEM content for members with accessible science activities that can be done from home on the Learning Launchpad.
Learning in the community: Chabot is currently working with community partners, including the Oakland Boys & Girls Club to plan future STEM workshops and other pop-up learning opportunities.
