3…2…1…BLAST OFF! Discovery Park of America is excited to host the new temporary exhibit “Astronaut” Jan. 17 – May 3, 2020. This in-depth exhibition gives you hands-on experiences that enlighten you about what life is like beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

Test your grip strength in special gloves that mimic the pressurized spacesuit or work as a team to smoothly launch your own space mission.

This exhibit is also great for student groups who are studying space. Talk to our reservations department to book your field trip and ask for the special space-related programs that we offer as part of the excursion. Check out the School and Visitors Guide for more information.
