Guests will take on the physical and mental challenges in the astronaut training center, experience a rocket launch, explore life on a Space Lab and investigate how to do science in space to complete a mission. This special STEM exhibit provides future astronauts with the opportunity to “travel to space” without leaving the Museum!

The exhibit focuses on teamwork to solve problems, accurately perform tasks and overcome challenges that an astronaut would face on a real mission to the cosmos.

Guests can experience g-force, conduct maintenance on a space station, grow space food and learn the realities of showering, sleeping and using the toilet in space.
