IMAX movie at the Museum of Nature and Science: Journey to Space

Humans have punched through the stratosphere, walked on the moon, and lived continuously in orbit. Next stop … Mars! Journey to Space 3D explores how NASA’s impending era will be its greatest yet by showcasing plans for such audacious missions as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids. From behind the scenes at NASA to the suspense of operations way out in space, this sweeping film creates both a new appreciation for humankind’s amazing journey in space so far and inspires the next generation of young people to dream of reaching new horizons.

“Epic Escape Game” 

The concept is simple: You and your team will be locked in a room where you have 60 minutes to find clues, solve puzzles and escape the room before your time is up. 

Toys in The Attic:

You just inherited your great aunt's old house.  Rummaging around in the attic, the door slams shut and you are locked in.  All you see is old toys. Then you remember your great aunt always saying "The robot holds the key".  Now it makes sense.  Find the robot, get the key and unlock the door.  Remember, toys can play too.
