Explore the Universe in the Bishop Planetarium

KidSpace is a new program for kids who want to explore everything there is to know about space and become "Masters of the Universe." From 10:15 a.m. to 11 a.m. each Saturday morning, we’ll unleash the awesome power of the Bishop Planetarium, taking off from Earth’s surface and flying to places no human has gone before: the Sun, the planets, other moons of our solar system, newly discovered solar systems in our galaxy and beyond. The planetarium has a virtual reality, fly-through atlas of the entire universe, so there’s no place that we can’t go!

KidSpace is for kids in elementary school, grades 1-5, and their grown-ups. There will be a new series each quarter, which will allow us to explore different aspects of the universe for a few months in great detail. We’ll explore something and someplace new each week and learn about one new constellation in the current nighttime sky — that way can get out and explore the stars from your own backyard. 

KidSpace Details:

  • Cost: $5 for non-members, $3 for members. (Museum admission is not included in KidSpace program admission. Admission is FREE for Museum Members. Non-members who plan to stay and enjoy the Museum for the day can add the discounted KidSpace ticket price of $3 per person to their Museum admission ticket.) 
  • Series: You can also sign up for a whole, quarterly series and get a discounted rate of $48 per person for non-members, $24 per person for members — that’s $1 off each exploration.
