School and Group Programs

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center lets group visitors be curious, ask questions and create memories. That’s why a group visit to Morehead can bring a twinkle to the eye even 40 years later. Every day, Morehead staff members meet people who fondly recall past visits while planning their next.

Morehead offers a number of great programs that are wonderful for groups. For school field-trip groups, Morehead’s staff will work with educators to create a superlative learning experience that students will remember forever. For other groups, Morehead will provide the same level of care and attention to create a fun, engaging trip to one of North Carolina’s best-loved institutions.
