This brand new, state-of-the-art center takes visitors from the inner workings of our planet to the outer limits of the galaxy. The 87-foot-tall glowing sphere which appears to float in a glass-walled cube houses the new Hayden Planetarium, featuring the most technologically advanced space theater in the world, in which visitors can experience space shows of incredible realism.
The Big Bang Theater is a dramatic re-creation of the first minutes of the origins of the universe, examining issues such as how the universe evolved and providing an understanding of this theory for all ages.
