Sci-Port: Louisiana's Science Center will be closed on Mondays from September through February in an effort to reduce operational expenses.  The Center will be open on the following Mondays that are regularly scheduled Caddo and/or Bossier school holidays: September 6, October 18, October 25, November 22, December 20, December 27, January 3, January 17 and February 21. 

Also starting in September, the Center will open at Noon on Sundays year-round.

As always, Sci-Port is closed Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.  

Sci-Port estimates an annual savings of $75,000 by closing the building to all staff and visitors on Mondays for six months and an increase in earned revenues on Sundays from birthday parties, IMAX films and lunch sales in the cafe. 

Despite the reduction in operational hours, the Center will continue to provide the same high-quality, hands-on, daily changing programs to our Members, school groups and visitors.  To make a tax-deductible donation to support Sci-Port's exhibits, programs and IMAX films, please click to donate or call (318) 424-3466.
