Space Night Open House

October 25, 4 p.m.6 p.m.

Event Navigation

Visit the Oklahoma History Center for a STEAM* space-filled family night on October 25th from 4-6 p.m. Families can engage with art and crafts, learn to use real telescopes, and go on a scavenger hunt to win prizes! A team from the Geostationary Carbon Cycle Observatory from the University of Oklahoma will join in the fun of the event. Visitors can also use the Observing With NASA exhibit kiosk—a hands-on exhibit that engages visitors in the art and science of NASA imagery. Observing With NASA offers an introduction to the tools, data, and skills that NASA space scientists and data visualization experts use to create the images of deep space objects that we all know and love.

This event coincides with the exhibit Launch to Landing: Oklahomans and Space, a permanent exhibit dedicated to the Oklahomans that have contributed to the U.S. Space program since the beginning of the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) as well as the early pioneers of aviation. The centerpiece of this exhibit is the CM-118, the command module for all of the Skylab missions.

This event is free and open to the public from 4 to 6 p.m.

*STEAM is a specific skill set that merges: S=Science, T=Technology, E=Engineering, A=Art, and M=Math.
Pregistration has closed, but visitors are still welcome to attend! Registration is not required.
