Moon to Mars: The Amazeum’s New Exhibit is Out of this World!

The Scott Family Amazeum features exhibits from museums and science centers across the nation in its Traveling Exhibits gallery. They change out approximately every quarter.

Moon to Mars in the newest exhibit and it’s out of this world! Moon to Mars transports children to a world of possibilities in space travel. Young guests will be inspired by the current realities and future dreams of interplanetary travel while experiencing firsthand the diversity of talent and experience that a team requires to make space exploration a reality. 

What to expect:

Young explorers will design and fly their own rocket, hover high above another planet in our Orion Spacecraft, experience what it feels like to walk in a reduced gravity environment, and navigate the new terrain in the Lunar Rover. So cool!

The exhibit was created by the Omaha Children’s Museum, designed with support from NASA’s Deep Space Exploration Systems at Johnson Space Center. It’s only at the Amazeum through May 6!
