Educator Resource Kit

Educate your family about our Solar System's celestial family! Join Sol (the Sun) and Astro, his alien sidekick, as they lead a musical introduction to the wonders of Sol’s children, the planets and other members of our Solar System.

Let Sol and Astro take your kids on their first encounter with the incredible speed of Mercury, the searing heat of Venus, the frigid conditions of Pluto and the unimaginable size of Jupiter. A light-hearted sing-along ties together Sol and Astro’s journey through the Solar System and will help your kids more easily remember what they’ve learned along the way

Age recommendation

A fantastic beginner’s introduction to the Solar System, “Sol & Company” is best suited for young children (up to age 7) and their families.

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.
