Brace yourself for an unforgettable hands-on, climb-aboard cosmic adventure of science fun as you find out first-hand just what it takes to be an astronaut working in the fascinating environment of space.
At 10,000 square feet, Journey to Space features two massive rotating labs that provide a glimpse of what it looks and feels like to be on the International Space Station Destiny module.
Check out space-tastic interactives including a robotic arm, water rockets and ion engines; a space station activity area and construction center for kids; and numerous authentic space travel and exploration objects.
Journey to Space is presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota and the California Science Center with support from NASA, and presented locally by Highland Capital Management, and requires a surcharge for members and non-members.

While you're at the Perot, step inside the theater to watch the 20-minute film Journey to Space 3D (Oct. 19, 2017-May 6, 2018). Narrated by Patrick Stewart, Journey to Space 3D explains how space exploration didn’t die with the end of the Space Shuttle program. Rather, some of the most exciting missions of our time lie ahead – from capturing asteroids to landing astronauts on Mars.
