June 30 @ 1:30 am - 3:30 pm
Look toward the skies! June 30 is Asteroid Day, a United Nations sanctioned day of public awareness about the risks of asteroid impacts. And while 66 million years ago, a huge asteroid collided with Earth, sparking a mass extinction that wiped out most of the dinosaurs, our dinos in the Dino Discovery exhibition have nothing to worry about … today.
At Kaleideum, we’re here from 1:30-3:30 pm to help our visitors embark on the exploration of asteroids, comets, meteorites, and beyond! Engage with knowledgeable Kaleideum educators who will unveil the secrets of these celestial wonders. Immerse yourself further with NASA videos in the planetarium. And don’t miss the opportunity to capture a moment alongside a genuine meteorite, a space tire, or even the elusive “Far Side” of the Moon — available for discovery at Kaleideum! And the best part? It’s absolutely FREE with your museum admission.
