Great Lakes Science Center will be closed to the public effective March 13, 2020 in accordance with the new order from state health officials restricting large gatherings.

The closure will be in place for the foreseeable future.

This will include any private rental events, fee-based programs, Cleveland Clinic DOME movie screenings, the free admission event that was scheduled for Saturday evening on March 14, the opening day of the Body Worlds Rx exhibition scheduled for March 20, and Camp Curiosity Spring Break camps.

The safety of our staff, partners, and guests remains our top priority. If you were planning an event, or have a question about a program registration, please email us at, or call us at 216-621-2400.

We are following recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health. The Science Center will reopen as soon as it is determined safe and responsible to do so. We appreciate the patience of our guests and members, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
