KIDS & FAMILIES EVENT (Ages 6+)
Moonstruck Mania: An Art & Science Adventure
In Collaboration with Vanderbilt Museum

Sunday, July 24, 3:30 – 6:30 pm

Begin your adventure at The Heckscher Museum exploring the exhibition Moonstruck: Lunar Art from the Collection and creating a lunar masterpiece! Then, meet at the Vanderbilt Museum for a 30-minute live lecture of the night sky using the planetarium theater’s amazing star projection system. The presenter will go over the objects that are visible in the sky the night of the event, including stars, constellations, nebulae, galaxies, and the  Moon. Visitors will then watch the 30-minute fulldome film “Earth, Moon & Sun.” Following the programs in the theater, and weather-permitting, will be an opportunity to look through one of the Vanderbilt Observatory telescopes to see fine details of the Moon up close and to create a moon-themed craft. Sandwiches, snacks, and soft drinks will be available from the planetarium’s café for purchase.

$15 per person
Registration recommended. Walk-ins welcome as space allows.
