While visiting the exhibit hall, make sure to spend time with our Magic Planet, a 4-ft interactive globe which operates via touch-screen. With just a touch, you might choose to transform the Earth into Jupiter, explore the boundaries of tectonic plates, see our Earth at night, and so much more!

During weekends, you're invited to check out our short, kid-friendly presentations called "Magic Planet-oids."  These presentations are offered on Saturdays at 10:30am and 1:30pm and on Sundays at 1:30pm.  Topics vary and are appropriate for all ages. "Magic Planet-oids" are free with general admission and for Heard Museum members.

Magic Planet-oids will not be held on the following exceptions: April 6 – morning (afternoon will be open), April 7, April 13, April 14, April 21. 

Although this exhibit closes for fieldtrips and parties, it is usually available to members and general admission guests until 3:00pm on the weekends. Please refer to this page for schedule exceptions.

Make your birthday or field trip a truly out-of-this-world event by booking a Magic Planet program! Also, be sure to get a preview during our our Heard After Hours programs.
