The interactive exhibit shows all aspects of space travel to the moon. It also examines unanswered questions of existence and the potential of future space exploration to provide answers.
"It really has something for all ages. It's intended to be fun and exceptionally interactive and certainly educational but really designed to not look at just today but our future and where do we anticipate going because that's really what it's all about," Jim Kidrick of SDASM said.
“Space: A Journey To Our Future” allows participants to explore a Lunar Base Camp including bunk beds and a kitchen, experience the physiological challenges of space flight, touch actual Moon meteorites and Mars rocks, see artifacts from the space program up close, and learn about future exploration of the universe in a 360-degree theatre.
In additional to this special exhibit, the museum’s regular collection will be on display for visitors.
Now is the time to visit this special exhibit because February is Museum Month in San Diego.
