Now Showing: Stars of the Pharaohs
Travel to ancient Egypt to see how science was used to tell time, make a workable calendar, and align huge buildings. You’ll learn about the connection the ancient Egyptians felt with the stars and various astronomical phenomena. And thanks to the time Digital Theater’s production team spent in Egypt taking photographs and measurements, you’ll see some of the most spectacular temples and tombs of the ancient world recreated in all of their original splendor. Narrated by John Rhys-Davies.
Assisted listening devices are available for all shows within the Planetarium at no extra cost. A photo ID is necessary to borrow the device. Please request the devices at the Guest Services desk. If you are planning a visit as a group you can make this request in advance.
