McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center

The Discovery Center has an amazing collection of interactive exhibits that explore the worlds of astronomy, aviation, and Earth and space sciences. Field trips are a 90-minute theater experience, that includes a pre-show demonstration, multi-planetarium show, and time to explore the exhibits. Planetarium shows range from topics such as Earth's climate, the night sky, and the solar system; to documentaries about historic and contemporary space travel. There are programs at the Discovery Center for all groups, such as the Super Stellar Friday workshop series, Little Explorers workshops, homeschool, scout and teacher workshops, and on-site educator demonstrations.
