Saint Louis Science Center
St. Louis, Missouri
With more than 700 hands-on exhibits in a multi-building complex, the Saint Louis Science Center (SLSC) is among the largest science centers in the country. Each year, nearly one million visitors enjoy the Science Center’s exhibit galleries, James S. McDonnell Planetarium, OMNIMAX® Theater, and a rich variety of public programs.
A partnership was formed in 2013 after a national RFP process. Wildlife Trading Company operates the Explore Store, a 4,000 sq ft science themed gift shop filled with a variety of educational products, games and souvenirs. A new store is in the planning phase. Wildlife Trading Company also manages the Science Center’s traveling exhibit retail space.
