MOSAC! (Museum of Science and Curiosity) will be a dynamic epicenter for STEM education and an anchor point for Sacramento’s revitalized waterfront.

It will be seen by thousands of people traveling I-5 every day. The mission of MOSAC 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. 

The City of Sacramento, SMUD and the Powerhouse Science Center embarked on a multi-year effort to transform the 114-year-old historic power station on Jibboom Street into a dynamic regional destination. 

MOSAC! will bring K-12 schools, colleges, universities, libraries, museums, and other community resources together to remove barriers and build a Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) learning ecosystem. 

All members of the community will have lifelong access to high-quality STEAM experiences and where Sacramento will become leader in STEAM innovation, employment, and literacy.
