In most planetariums, the massive overhead screen permanently plays the role of a starry night sky, but not at the Museum of Science. Its planetarium rotates through a round-up of popular shows, and some have nothing to do with outer space! In addition to movies starring Mars and the constellations, the planetarium also plays host to audio-visual concerts set to tunes by David Bowie, Beyonce, and many other modern artists.
This is just one example of the ways the Museum of Science stays on the cutting edge. It plays host to more than 30 exhibits that explore the various facets of science, from the way the world generates energy to the history of the dinosaurs. Stop by the Butterfly Garden to meet living, breathing examples of Mother Nature or check out the Energized! exhibit to learn more about the eco-friendly ways electricity can be created. You can even see turtles and porcupines at the Live Animal Care Center within the museum.
