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!

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.
