Plans are moving along to transform Space Odyssey into an all-new experience in 2020. The gallery will close for several months, beginning Thursday, March 19, with the grand reopening scheduled for mid-November 2020. You and your family are invited to continue to enjoy the current Space Odyssey in the coming months and watch for other ways to engage in space science during construction.

We are very excited about creating a new Space Odyssey as captivating as space itself, seamlessly integrating science, nature, art, and technology to foster a deeper and enduring understanding of our home planet and the universe. Check back here for updates!

For now, we invite you to 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 space news headlines are brought to life. Museum Galaxy Guides lead the way as you investigate using hands-on exhibits, demonstrations, and the amazing Science on a Sphere global display system.

Ongoing support for Space Odyssey is provided by United Launch Alliance and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company.
