Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration offers a glimpse into humanity's next steps into our solar system and beyond.

Starting with the Moon, our closest neighbor, and heading out across our solar system, this exhibition uses models, videos, dioramas, and hands-on and digital interactives to immerse visitors in the high-stakes adventure of space exploration. 

Find out what's within reach in the near future and the possibilities that could come up on the horizon in years to come. 


Immersive dioramas, a futuristic moon habitat, and NASA's Curiosity Mars rover are among the exhibition's many highlights.
