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“!
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.
A winter holiday show for all ages! We explore the night sky in winter, tracking down constellations and discovering the stories they have to tell. Then, the familiar holiday story, ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas is retold, but with a twist: Santa is in a flying saucer instead of his sleigh! Will Christmas ever be the same again? This 35 minute show is suitable for families and young audiences.
