We set out on the Oregon Trail for an afternoon of science and history. Learn how the early settlers of the west traveled, ate, and worked. Make butter by hand the old-fashioned way, dip candles, and even pan for gold!
The Science Factory is Lane County's only hands-on science museum and planetarium, located in beautiful Alton Baker Park in Eugene, Oregon. Learn about science and technology through hands-on exhibitions, discover astronomy in the planetarium, and be a part of special events and programs that come to you year-round. We promise each visit will be a fun learning experience!
