For more than 100 years, the RMSC has evolved to meet the needs of the Rochester community while generating interest in exploration. With the help of supporters, sponsors, donors, community members, and friends, we continue to flourish and reach well beyond Rochester.

As a visitor today, you’ll encounter the spectacular intricacies of science, technology, and nature in a hands-on atmosphere. Our interactive Science Museum, four-story Strasenburgh Planetarium dome, and 900-acre Cumming Nature Center offer exciting informal learning experiences. Through 200 hands-on exhibits, spectacular shows, and extensive collections, you’ll uncover the wonders of the universe and our role in it all. You hold the power as you make amazing discoveries and inventions of your own.
