The Pacific Science Center began as the US Science Pavilion of the 1962 World's Fair. Click on the photo to enlarge this night view. The buildings and distinctive arches were designed by Seattle native son and NY World Trade Center architect Minoru Yamasaki. The PSC is an active and thriving science museum, currently hosting the popular Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit.

Have you been to see the exhibit? Our local parish is taking families over next Saturday. My kids are going, but Grandma, that would be me, has to teach. Grumble, grumble.

This is how old I am: I remember this structure from when I attended the World's Fair in 1962!

I live to the north of the boarder, just an hour east of Vancouver.
Enjoy your photos. The shot of Dicks is cool. Very nice old style buger drive in joint. You captured it perfectly.

Sounds like an interesting exhibit. I used to work for a science musuem in Berkeley and we did business with PSC...so that's what it looks like!

Yes, Kim, the arches are splendid! Suggestion: Go to the new St. Louis blog and check out the glass piece--I'm sure it's a Dale Chihuly, who is, in addition to a former student, my favorite glass blower!

Great photo. I can see these from my window and wonder why sometimes they're lit up white and sometimes multi-coloured. I didn't know the architect also designed the WTC. Notwithstanding recent events, I think I prefer the arches!
