If you have ever dreamed of being an astronaut, the Journey to Space exhibit gives curious kids and adults a chance to step into their shoes. With over 10,000 square feet of interactive and hands-on experiences, visitors can experiment with weightless weights, play with robots and climb aboard a full-size, simulated International Space Station.

Journey to Space also answers all the mysteries of what it means to be in space for years at a time. See how differently astronauts do daily activities, like cooking and exercising. You can also learn about the dangers and rewards of human space travel and the advancements in space technology.

But the fun doesn't stop there! If you want to blast off into even more space adventures, plan to attend the family-fun Discovery Days on Dec. 9 where kids can launch rockets, learn about craters, and create their own solar system and alien. On March 21, adults can enjoy the National Geographic Live! Speaker Series featuring celebrated astronaut, space shuttle pilot and International Space Station commander Terry Virts.
