Learning about science in a museum is safer than experiencing it firsthand by accidentally ingesting a science textbook. Embrace science with today’s Groupon to Science Factory. Choose from the following options:

  • For $4, you get admission for two to a dome show at the Exploration Dome (up to an $8 value).
  • For $6, you get admission for two to a laser light show between February 2 and February 25 (up to a $12 value).
  • For $7, you get admission for four to a dome show at the Exploration Dome (up to a $16 value).
  • For $10, you get admission for four to a laser light show between February 2 and February 25 (up to a $24 value).

Laser light shows and themed movies project overhead at Science Factory’s Exploration Dome, filling the wide eyes and open minds of youngsters with the wonders of space and science. Movies cover brain-wrinkling topics such as the search for extra-terrestrials, black holes, and the magnetism of peeling dried glue off of fingernails. Star enthusiasts explore the stories behind seasonally visible constellations during a 20-minute show on Saturdays and Sundays. Kids learn about geometry and logarithmic spirals as streams of light illumine the curved projection screen overhead. Laser shows pair their amorphous designs with recordings of Pink Floyd, Metallica, and Carl Sagan singing in the shower.

The Science Factory

Through exhibits that explore everything from astronomy and physics to biology and paleontology, the Science Factory inspires a lifelong love of science in children as well as adults. Above all else, the nonprofit embraces a motto of "please touch," creating safe, engaging opportunities for children to act on their curiosity and gain insight into the principles underlying scientific and technological theories.

The Exploration Dome exemplifies the immersive nature of the Museum, surrounding audiences with a full-dome screen that displays digital and live-action films. These educational features can take guests to virtually any location in the world and beyond, including the heart of the Borneo rainforest, the depths of prehistoric oceans, the edge of our galaxy's super-massive black hole, and a universe where popcorn kernels never get stuck in your teeth. Permanent exhibits—including a feature on responsible recycling as well as a terrarium of lizards, frogs, and plants, complete with Renegade, the Museum's resident iguana—explore topics in more depth, complementing both the Exploration Dome’s videos and an ever-changing roster of special attractions.
