Museum Galaxy Guides facilitate hands-on space science activities and demonstrations for the public in the Space Odyssey Gallery. Museum Galaxy Guides work as a team, delivering an out-of-this world educational experience for our visitors through innovative, interactive live performances and demonstrations and one-on-one conversations with visitors. The Space Odyssey philosophy is one that promotes curiosity and continued learning experiences for people of all ages. Museum Galaxy Guides have a zest for life and a zeal for space science!
