Sun, Earth, Universe Exhibition at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit

Explore our solar system and beyond at the permanent Sun, Earth, Universe exhibition at Detroit's Michigan Science Center, opening up Nov. 24, 2018.

Does your kid dream of galaxies far away? Immerse her in stars, planets and other celestial bodies in Detroit at the Michigan Science Center’s new Sun, Earth Universe Exhibition, which opens to the public on Nov. 24, 2018.

This permanent exhibit is the result of a collaboration between NASA and the National Informal STEM Education Network, and it aims to engage kids in all things Earth and space science.

MiSci is one of 52 total institutions to receive this 600-square-foot exhibition, which answers questions about the Earth, how it’s changing, what other planets are like and whether or not we’re alone in the universe.

Kids that visit the exhibit will also get to explore electromagnetic energy and other forces invisible to the naked eye, design and test model spacecraft and examine images from outer space.

The Sun, Earth, Universe Exhibition is included with the general price of admission to the Michigan Science Center – $14/adults, $11/kids 12 and under and free for kids under 2 – and is open during regular museum hours, which are as follows:

  • 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday-Friday
  • 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday
  • Noon-5 p.m. Sunday

Parking is available free on weekdays in the center’s lot, at the Wayne State University Rackham and Welcome Center garages or at the Cultural Center lot for $7-$8/day. Lot hours vary.
