Title supplied by cataloger. The Armory Building was designed in by State Architect J.W. Woollett for the California National Guard 160th Infantry and built in 1912. In 2003, the California Science Center's Board of Directors voted to rename the Armory Building as the Wallis Annenberg Building for Science Learning and Innovation due to contributions toward the redevelopment of the building by architect Thomas Mayne, which reopened in 2004.
