It is human nature to stretch, to go, to see, to understand. Exploration is not a choice, really; its an imperative.
- Michael Collins, Gemini and Apollo astronaut

Developed in partnership with the International Space Station Office of NASA's Johnson Space Center, the California Science Center and the partner museums of the Science Museum Exhibit Collaborative, the 10,000-square-foot Space exhibition will invite visitors to experience traveling to, living and working in space. You will be immersed in the challenges that astronauts—and the engineers and scientists that make their journeys possible—face. Premiering at the Science Museum of Minnesota in February 2015 and touring to 14 museums over the following seven years, Space will feature interactive exhibits, whole body experiences and authentic artifacts that will engage your visitors with the unparalleled adventure of space exploration.
