Black Holes: Journey to the Unknown header


Imagine a place where time stands still, where the universal order breaks down, where the unimaginable becomes reality.

It's no longer the stuff of science fiction — this planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme in the world of black holes!

Witness what would happen if you got too close to one. See how a black hole is able to warp time and space. Discover what science has taught us about these phenomena ... and what we must still learn.

"Black Holes: Journey into the Unknown" is narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Geoffrey Rush and produced by Museum Victoria.

Teachers: This show is available in Spanish for your group trip! Morehead offers two options for this: The show can be presented in Spanish for the entire audience, or Morehead can provide assistive listening devices for a Spanish translation (serving up to 10 students) while the show is presented in English. If you need one of these options for your class, please discuss this with Morehead Guest Relations when you are confirming your field trip reservation. The assistive listening device option is also available for individual guests (not with a field trip group) with advance notice.

Age recommendation

Recommended for ages 9 and older.

Seasonal schedules

Visiting soon? Check out Morehead's interactive calendar to see what's happening when you'll be here. Just click the date — the interactive calendar is typically up-to-date within one week of today.

Please note that Morehead does not offer all of its shows every day and that exhibits may be closed for maintenance or for classes during some hours.

If you're planning to visit several weeks from today, check out our current schedule of public shows to plan your trip and check the interactive calendar just before your visit to learn about any schedule updates.

Please note that seasonal schedules change four times each year (spring, summer, fall and holiday), and some shows are not offered during every schedule.


School shows

In addition to its public shows, Morehead offers shows during the week especially for school classes and other field trip groups. These school shows do not appear on the seasonal schedule but do appear on Morehead's daily calendar.

If seats are available, the public may purchase tickets to school shows.

However, school groups with reserved seating have first priority on any remaining seats (for example, if extra chaperons attend), so Morehead cannot guarantee that public seats will be available for school shows.
