On certain dates and times, the Science Center will offer Low Sensory Days in the DINOSAURS IN MOTION exhibition. During these times, the exhibition will have regular room lighting (not theatrical or strobe lighting) and the sounds on all videos and the dinosaurs will be off or very low. Please note, the dinosaurs in the exhibition make noise just from their movement, so the exhibition cannot be completely quiet. Those buying tickets at these times will be alerted to the exhibition conditions.
Please join the Saint Louis Science Center and the St. Louis Astronomical Society on Saturday May 10 for fun astronomy-related activities and solar observing (weather permitting) at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium. We will be raffling off five telescopes throughout the day! Activites are free!
