Family Activities

Space Quest Guess

Space Guess Quest is a fun, self-guided game that encourages participants to identify the many types of objects in space, from human-made spacecraft to nebulas, galaxies, stars, and worlds. Players ask yes-or-no questions about their opponents' secret object until they can correctly identify it among all the objects on the game board. The first player to guess correctly wins the game!

Saturday, April 16 – Sunday, April 24, 12-4 pm, Free with Museum Admission

Nebula Spin Art

In this activity, participants will learn about how gigantic clouds of gas and dust in space, called nebulas, are formed. They'll create their own colorful model nebula using paint and a spinner. Because of the unique quantities and locations of the materials and the forces that spread them out, each model nebula will be unique—just like each real nebula!

Monday, April 18 – Sunday, April 24, 12-4 pm, Free with Museum Admission

Planetarium Shows

The all-digital, JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium — with its state-of-the-art high-resolution projection and sound system provides an exciting, entertaining, and unparalleled experience that will take you on journeys you’ve only imagined. Just a $5.00 add-on to your museum admission!
