Dogs! A Science Tail at the California Science Center

Sniff out the science behind our puppy love. Let curiosity be your guide and discover life from a dog’s point of view in Dogs! A Science Tail.

Experience the extraordinary way a dog sees, hears, and smells the world through fun and unique hands-on exhibits in this 9,000 sq. ft. exhibition for humans. From lovable companions to loyal protectors, dogs evolved from ancient wolves into the cuddly canines that live and work alongside us today. Unearth the science beneath the enduring bond and dig deeper into these incredible animals. You will never look at dogs the same way again.

Some guests may catch a visit from volunteer partners and their rescue dogs, service dogs, and companion dogs; demonstrations are subject to availability.

Please note: Humans only! Service dogs that have been individually trained to work or perform tasks for a guest with a disability are welcome, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Pets, comfort animals, emotional support animals, or therapy animals are not allowed, for the safety of the exhibit animals in the Science Center’s World of Life and Ecosystems exhibitions.

Also, Dog Tales, an exhibition featuring original artworks by Norman Rockwell, Charles Schulz and other artists. The artworks reveal humans’ close and enduring relationship with dogs, relating stories of the important roles dogs play in our lives and what they mean to us.

Enhance your experience: see Superpower Dogs 3D on their 7-story IMAX screen.

Dogs! A Science Tail is scheduled to run at the California Science Center through January 5, 2020.
