Experience the past, present and future of space exploration. The "SPACE: A Journey to Our Future" exhibition immerses visitors in the discoveries of the past and introduces them to today's explorers who are shaping our destiny in the universe.
Visitors will experience the sights and sounds of space exploration through live performances, easy-to-use interactive exhibits and state-of-the-art projection and audio technology. Visitors can ride a lunar module simulator on a journey to the surface of the moon and visit a simulated scientific base camp on Mars. Although SPACE is geared to young people ages 9 to 17, visitors of all ages will enjoy learning about space exploration.
The 12,000-square-foot exhibition is one of the largest touring space exhibits ever developed. Over the next four years, it will visit Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Cleveland, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
