Exhibits are interactive and fun for all ages, helping guests explore real scientific phenomena. Be prepared to launch through the solar system when you touch real meteorites and view a Moon rock collected by NASA astronauts.
IMAX 3D Films
The big screen makes a big impression when watching an IMAX 3D documentary about the solar system or origins of earth. You could find yourself dodging stars or following fish as they swim in the ocean. Our IMAX movies take the audience on a journey through space and adventures in Earth science.
