Who We Are
Located on the banks of the Animas River in an historic coal-fire steam-powered AC power generating plant, the Powerhouse Science Center presents a wide range of programs, exhibits, and activities designed to provide an entertaining and inspiring look at science — past, present, and future.
The Powerhouse Science Center is Southwest Colorado’s premier hands-on, interactive science center for all ages. Open year-round, the science center is a dynamic place for family adventures, school field trips, early childhood learning, special events, hanging around by the river, messing around with amazing technology, and just plain geeking out.
To spark curiosity, ignite imagination, and power exploration.
To be a leading science and educational center in the Southwest that brings together curious minds of all ages, inspires innovative learning, and unleashes human potential.
Skilled, professional, dedicated.
We’re committed to creating a science center that is welcoming to all communities in the Four Corners and beyond.
