My Sky Exhibit Opening

February 15, 2020 | 10:00 AM-5:00 PM

Join Ella Sharp Museum for the exhibit opening of "My Sky"!

"My Sky" is an exhibit about the universe. But it is also about each of us, and how the sky above impacts our lives here on Earth. The sky is, after all, universal. "My Sky" invites children and adults to explore the Sun, the Moon and the stars together in an immersive, inviting environment. Families are encouraged to “look up” not only when they visit the exhibit, but also in their everyday lives. And "My Sky" gives families the chance to practice science skills like observing, communicating, noticing patterns, predicting, imagining and more — science skills that are fundamental to astronomy, and skills that scientists and engineers use every day.

The "My Sky" exhibit was funded by NASA and created through a partnership between Boston Children’s Museum and Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. "My Sky" has four primary areas of activity: a skate park, in which children explore the Sun; a child’s room, where visitors investigate the Moon and the stars; a Moon Dome where families have a one-of-a-kind experience with the Moon; and a backyard that offers experiences about the Sun, the Moon and the stars together.
