Travel to ancient Egypt to see how science was used to tell time, make a workable calendar, and align huge buildings. You’ll learn about the connection the ancient Egyptians felt with the stars and various astronomical phenomena, and experience some of the most spectacular temples and tombs of the ancient world recreated in their original splendor. Narrated by John Rhys-Davies, “Sallah” from the Indiana Jones films. This 35 minute show is designed for audiences ages 10 and up.
This planetarium show is a perfect compliment to our temporary exhibition, “Wrapped: The Mummy of Pessed“!
Zula Patrol: Down to Earth
While on a routine fossil-hunting mission, The Zula Patrol uncovers an unusual pile of trash — of suspiciously modern origin — buried in the rock strata of an ancient canyon. The Zula Patrollers must travel back in time to solve the problem and prevent catastrophic consequences! Based on the award-winning TV series, The Zula Patrol, now reaching 300 million households worldwide. This 25 minute show is designed for young families.
Back to the Moon for Good
Back To The Moon For Good begins with a tour through the history of lunar exploration, tracing back to the 1960′s and 1970′s. We hear from some of the teams racing to land a robotic spacecraft on the moon and win the Google Lunar XPRIZE. The audience is taken on a successful launch, landing and tour of the lunar surface. The show ends with an enticing visualization of a future settlement on the moon. Narrated by Tim Allen, “Buzz Lightyear” from the Toy Story animated films. This 35-minute show is designed for audiences ages 10 and up.
