Do you ♥ love? We do, too! Join us for a special 45-minute edition of our MPM Exposed tour, and hear stories of love, heartbreak, and weird mating habits of the animal kingdom.

Couples can embark on an out-of-this-world date at the Planetarium, complete with a romantic tour of the universe and a look at which star clusters are actually "constellations of love." A red rose and box of chocolates will be given to each couple.
