Teachers Enjoy Free Admission to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center this weekend!

As our salute to educators for their hard work and dedication, please join us next weekend, Jan. 16-18, 2021, for Teacher Appreciation Weekend at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Present your school identification throughout the weekend and receive free general admission for yourself to the museum.

Get a true sense of life aboard the International Space Station in our exhibition, ISS: Science on Orbit. Experience a model of NASA’s Payload Operations Integration Center, where scientists and engineers on Earth manage the complex, international science experiments that astronauts conduct on the International Space Station and explore an interactive walkthrough of the International Space Station. Also visit our current featured exhibition, “Apollo: When We Went to the Moon.” This exhibit chronicles the timeline from the beginning of the Space Race – a time when the U.S. and Soviet Union competed over their accomplishments in space exploration – to the collaborative culture of the International Space Station program and beyond.

While you’re here, learn about the amazing programming the U.S. Space & Rocket Center has to offer and register to win a free Virtual Intuitive Planetarium Show for your class.

Members of the Rocket Center education team will host a mini “open-house” throughout the weekend, answering questions about new onsite and virtual resources for educators in 2021.
