The Virginia Air & Space Science Center: The Space Explorer Gallery

Big changes have been happening at The Virginia Air & Space Science Center! After months of being closed, it is open now with a new name to include the word science. With a core mission in science education, it makes sense for the word to be in the name. 

The Space Explorer Gallery is the first new step to becoming more hands on and engaging. An added bonus, you can tell that the museum took great care to craft this gallery around the Virginia SOLS with moon phases, planets and galaxies, sound waves, gravity and space life. 

Also new is the new and updated seating, screen, audio system, lights, and floors in the Imax theater. The museum actually has the largest screen in Hampton Roads and a movie is included in general admission. If you missed our first post about the Air & Space (now Science!) Center, check it out here
