Have you ever wondered what the building is that you see from I-5 as you drive from the airport to downtown? It’s the future home of the Powerhouse Science Center.
We will revitalize the historic PG&E Powerhouse building—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—and incorporate Robert T. Matsui Waterfront Park into a dynamic new campus right on the Sacramento River. The new Powerhouse is just a fifteen minute walk up the bike trail from the California State Railroad Museum. The New Powerhouse Science Center will serve as a model for 21st-century experiential education centers in science, technology, engineering, math, and space.
