This summer, we hope you enjoy the exciting new show line-up at the Fleischmann Planetarium. Also, come back weekly to experience outstanding planetarium shows from around the world — with changing selections every Friday and Saturday!
We also will expand our “Mission Moon” exhibit this summer to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11. As our guest crew members, you will be able to try your hand at more than 30 interactive stations.
In addition, we’ll be experimenting with a new virtual reality cafe where you can explore such exciting destinations as Antarctica, the International Space Station (for a spacewalk) or even the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon! The adventures are just beginning!
So consider escaping the heat of the sun — explore the cool depths of space with us.
Your fellow crewmates: Director Paul McFarlane and the “Mission Moon” Team
