Welcome to Mosac

Introducing Sacramento’s science center: SMUD Museum of Science and Curiosity, or simply MOSAC.

MOSAC piques curiosity and sparks imagination in our guests of all ages with hands-on interactive exhibits and programming that explore the wonders of science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Our exhibitions address global and local issues on topics relating to energy, health, water, nature, space and design engineering. The state-of-the-art planetarium theater screens a variety of spectacular star shows and feature films.

Our Mission

MOSAC’s mission is to serve as a dynamic regional hub that engages and inspires people of all ages to explore the wonders, possibilities, and responsibilities of science.

We aim to inspire the next generation of scientists, technologists and thought leaders to meet the needs of the 21st century workforce, and to help all of us face the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
