We invite you to sit under the stars and listen to the action-packed stories of the Norse gods: Thor, Loki, Odin, and Freya. On this tour of the solar system, you'll learn fun facts about the planets, how the Nine Realms of Norse mythology were created, and how the days of the week received their names from the Norse gods. The show will end with a dazzling display of Norse constellations & legends.
Our Planetarium is an inflatable dome. Guests sit on cushions on the floor of the planetarium to view the show. Due to size, space is limited to 25 patrons at a time. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended for this reason. On Planetarium Nights, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled showing. In case of no-shows/late shows: reserved spots will be released at show time to make space for the next party.
Shows begin at 6 and 7 pm and last approximately 45 minutes.
Seating is limited and very popular. We encourage purchasing your tickets in advance, as this is a first come, first served event. Please call 850-664-1261, stop by the Science Center, or use our online ticketing option to purchase your tickets.

The COSTUME BOWL is an annual cosplay charity event to support Manna Food Pantries and Gulf Coast Kid's House. Although we had to take a brief hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we came back in 2021 with our most successful year yet! Now we're ready to continue our efforts to help with ALL proceeds going to Manna and GCKH.
Costumes are part of the fun but are *not required!* Our primary goal has always been to support our two great charities! Costumes DO NOT have to be sci-fi or fantasy-related, but they DO need to be family-friendly!
Bowlers can organize a team of up to 6 bowlers for $75, or register as an individual for only $15! Price includes 3 games & bowling shoes.

Come dressed in Halloween costumes, get your Trick-or-Treat candy, and prepare to be scared! We're ready to celebrate Halloween under the night sky in our inflatable planetarium. Join us for a fun and scary night of monster stories, inspired by our planets, moons, and stars. There will be stories of familiar monsters (werewolves, vampires, and minotaurs), unfamiliar monsters (Karakondzula, Chimera, and Coatlicue), and the heroes who battled them. In a battle between good and evil, who will win?
Join our 5 p.m. or 6 p.m. show for family-friendly stories about the creepy creatures of mythology hidden in the night sky. These showings are appropriate for ages 5-6 and up. Our 7 p.m. Spooktacular Show is more appropriate for ages 8 and up as the tales told during this show are spookier.
All shows last approximately 45 minutes.
