Orange County’s first and only Smithsonian Affiliate, the Taco Bell Discovery Science Center, is FREE for Santa Ana residents on the first Tuesday of the month, which is this week, on Feb. 1.

The Discovery Science Center is celebrating “A Decade of Discovery” as the Cube turns ten! The center has 59,000 square feet of exhibit space packed with science interactives designed to spark children’s natural curiosity.

In addition to the physical science complex, Discovery Science Center sees more than 150,000 school children in their classrooms each year. Now the largest provider of water education in Orange County, Discovery Science Center ranks in the top ten for education outreach among science centers across the nation.

The Science Center opened Dino Quest, the world’s first interactive dinosaur adventure, to record crowds in 2006! The Science of Hockey brought a new experience to the center in 2009. During the next five years, the Science Center will continue to expand our exhibit area and continue to grow our programs to help educate and inspire Orange County and surrounding areas.

New Exhibit: Grab the kids and run, jump and play your way through an interactive exhibition all about the human body. Sesame Street Presents: The Body comes to Discovery Science Center on January 29.

    1. According to their website, this changed in September of 2010. I am currently lobbying them to change the free day to a weekend date, as most folks cannot go there on a Tuesday, as they close at 5 pm and most of us work past that time.
