Archaeology Day

Join us for Archaeology Day and test your archaeology know-how. In conjunction with our new temporary exhibition, Weapons: Beyond the Blade, the special theme for this year’s event is non-firearm weapons. We’ll feature interactive programming on personal weaponry as an integral part of human history and evolution, and as emblems of power, meaning, beauty, and ingenuity.

One World, One Sky

Website_poster_graphics_oneworld.jpgTake an adventure with Big Bird into outer space and learn about the Sun, the Moon, and the constellations. Together with Elmo and a new pal from China, Hu Hu Zhu, you’ll see the night skies from Sesame Street, Zhima Jie, and all over earth. On this cross-culture voyage, our little viewers will discover how different outer space is from Earth, and how people all over the world are connected to each other. For children ages 4-6. One World, One Sky plays at 9:30 a.m. every Saturday morning.

This Daniel M. Soref National Geographic Dome Theater & Planetarium show is funded by PNC.
