2021 Members-Only Events

2020 pushed us to reimagine how we serve our members both in-person and virtually. This year, we will continue to offer members-only events that connect you with scientists, researchers and educational programming that will expand your knowledge. If you did not get a chance to attend an event yet, we still have plenty of interesting topics for the rest of the year. We will be offering live virtual chats with experts, behind-the-scenes virtual collections tours and member previews of OMNIMAX® Theater films and exhibitions.

The Evolution of NewScience

One of our staple benefits over the years to our members has been the NewScience magazine (yes, what you are reading
right now). The first issue debuted in the summer of ’85 when the completely renovated Planetarium reopened.
