Know Before You Go

Arizona Science Center Entrance

With your health and safety as our top priority, here's how to prepare for your visit to Arizona Science Center.

Masks Required: In line with the guidance provided by the Arizona Department of Health Services, Maricopa County Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control, all Arizona Science Center Guests, older than 24 months, are required to wear a mask regardless of their vaccination status. This policy will be strictly enforced without exceptions. Refunds will not be provided if you are asked to leave as a result of not following our mask policy.

Masks must be worn properly, covering the nose and mouth and secured under the chin, during your visit. Guests are encouraged to bring their own masks. 

  • Bandanas, mesh masks, and masks with one-way valves are prohibited. 
  • Double layer gaiter (folded) masks are acceptable, single layers are prohibited.
  • Face shields must still be worn with a face mask. 

If you or any member of your group are not able to wear a mask for any reason, we invite you to reschedule your visit for a future date when these requirements are no longer in place.

Reserve your tickets online. We have reduced daily capacity, and all Guests—including Members—must reserve timed-entry tickets to enter. Book your tickets in advance to reserve your preferred date and time.

Plan ahead and check availability. Arizona Science Center is open 7 days a week from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the last entry at 2:45 p.m. With daily capacity limited, some high-demand dates and times may sell out.

Stay home if you're not well or not sure. Please reschedule if anyone in your group is experiencing potential COVID-19 symptoms, awaiting COVID test results or has tested positive, or may have had recent COVID close contacts. Rebooking your visit is easy: Please contact the reservations office at or 602.716.2028 to reschedule your visit.

Follow physical distancing measures. Please maintain at least six feet of space between your group and other guests throughout the Science Center, including the lobby, exhibit galleries, elevators, and bathrooms.

We look forward to welcoming you soon. On behalf of our Team, thank you for your support of Arizona Science Center.
