January - March Weekday Star Show Schedule

Please arrive 15 minutes before showtime to purchase your tickets at the admissions desk inside The Museum. All tickets must be purchased at the admissions desk.

 

2pm – Legends of the Night Sky: Orion

Accompanied by narrators Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse, we follow Orion’s adventures as he grows to manhood, battles mythical beasts, foils the plot of an evil king and wins the heart of Artemis, the beautiful moon-goddess. By the end of the story, we learn how the constellation Orion was placed in the sky, forever turning overhead throughout the seasons.


3pm – From Earth to the Universe

The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. To learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes, we invite you to experience From Earth to the Universe.

4pm – Jack Frost and the Skies of Winter

Allison, a bright student eager to learn about the night sky, and Michael, her very uninterested brother, embark on an outing into the frigid winter night for a guided tour of the heavens. Jack Frost teaches the children and the audience about stars and winter constellation lore, and facts about star color and temperature, as well as an open-minded and imaginative approach to better understand the stellar pictures.
