Planetarium Show

Explore the Galaxy

Available only to schools as part of a Museum field trip.

Examine our solar system, then journey onward to discover firsthand the size and scale of the Milky Way galaxy. From there, take a grand tour of the cosmos, all the way to the farthest reaches of space and time.

Part of our "Explore" series, which leaves our Earth-bound view behind to take students on virtual tours of the solar system, Milky Way galaxy, or cosmos. With a live presenter as a guide, these highly interactive programs incorporate student questions and audience feedback to drive the program, selecting specific objects for exploration.

For field trip reservations, please call: 617-723-2500
