Are you curious? Of course you are! From birth, humans are naturally curious about the universe around them. And that’s the basic idea behind Morehead’s programming: create fun, educational programs that help people explore their own natural curiosity.
The centerpiece of Morehead’s programming is its famed planetarium, and that’s where your visit to Morehead should begin. In the 1960s, NASA sent its astronauts here for training in star recognition. Today, you can experience thrilling multimedia shows under the very same dome.
Once your planetarium show is complete, the journey is just beginning. A day at Morehead might include a visit to a fun, interactive exhibit; an exciting live science demonstration; and an engaging, live show about a current science topic.
