Welcome! ŸŸBienvenidos! ŸMique!

Powerhouse Science Center is the Four Corners' hands-on, interactive science center dedicated to providing innovative learning and unleashing human potential. Located on the banks of the Animas River in Durango's historic coal-fired, steam-generated AC powerplant, the Powerhouse presents a wide range of programs, exhibits, and activities for curious minds of all ages. 

We are committed to developing a science center that is welcoming and engaging to all communities in the Four Corners and beyond. We strive to be inclusive because we believe science and technology are for everyone.
