Of course, you can come an hour early and catch the last planetarium show to get a live presentation about our night sky. Of course the night sky in the planetarium is always picture-perfect, however the outside event is weather permitting.
Young Scientist Activity Center: we need your help!
TXMOST’s patrons are 70% families with young children, primarily aged 2 to 11. This target audience is common among science museums. To support our families now and into the future, we are developing and installing a special room for hands-on, free-choice STEM play. Play is important to the way that children learn. Constructivist learning opportunities allow children to explore new concepts and creative play allows them to solidify those new concepts and integrate with them other experiences.
Activity rooms create a space that makes families feel welcome. They help families overcome museum fatigue. They are an environment in which families can explore together in ways that are directed by the child, giving a child agency in their visit.
