Jews in Space: Family Program
Bring your children, bring your grandchildren and join us for an extraterrestrial adventure! Explore our stellar exhibition on a fun-filled, family scavenger hunt. Design a rocket ship that really takes off! Discover the mystifying, mesmerizing music of the theremin, an instrument you play but never touch. Then try it yourself and listen to that sci-fi sound. All this, plus what do astronauts eat for dinner? We'll skype with a NASA food scientist and see what's on the menu.
