Explore the cosmos. Visit Mars. Make your own discoveries!

As you emerge from an entry corridor with views of space, a dramatic Martian canyon lies to your right. To your left, dust and gas swirl in giant nebulae. This is Space Odyssey, where the universe is yours to explore and where space news headlines are brought to life.

Let knowledgeable Museum Galaxy Guides lead the way as you investigate using hands-on exhibits, live performances, and demonstrations.

Astronaut on Mars, Mars Outpost
Step up to the window of a diorama and look at Candor Chasma on Mars. Watch an "astronaut" conduct research, and ask questions via walkie-talkie to find out about living in space. Stop at the Experiment Bar to make discoveries about Mars.
