Check out the Children’s Museum and Science Center’s Newest Exhibit

Ever dreamed about being an astronaut? Now you can see what it’s like to be one! The Children’s Museum & Science Center is currently featuring a new traveling exhibit called “Be The Astronaut.” Centered around a series of state-of-the-art interactive video games, the exhibit allows visitors to learn about space travel while designing their own mission.

Using virtual technology, explore the moon, Mars, Jupiter, and the asteroid belt through programs recreated directly from NASA’s space probe data. Learn to fly a spaceship, pilot landers and drive rovers on the surface of various celestial bodies with the help of a virtual crew of experts.
