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. 

Throughout Space Odyssey, new activities and exhibits for all ages will revolve around five themes, each focused on “a way of knowing” about space, Earth, ourselves, and our shared humanity. 

  • Human Wonder. We learn by imagining what is out there.
  • Space from Earth. We learn by gazing at the stars.  
  • Machines in Space. We learn by sending machines beyond our reach.  
  • Earth from Space. We learn by examining our own world from space.  
  • People in Space. We learn by traveling to space ourselves.  
  • Beyond Human Wonder. We learn by imagining what remains to be discovered.
