Comets, Asteroids, Meteors: Great Balls of Fire

Special Exhibit Presented by U.S. Bank

Looking for something to do during Spring Break? We have a special exhibit the kids are sure to love!

The threat of a catastrophic impact from an asteroid or comet is a staple of popular culture. What are the chances and how do we assess the risks? For that matter, what are asteroids, comets and meteorites, and where do they come from?

The exhibit is available now through May 10, 2015 and is included with regular admission.

Learn more online here.

The Museum is open daily, 8am-5pm CST and the exhibits included with regular Museum admission. $10 adults, $5 kids age 6-16, or $25 for everyone in a household. Student and group rates are available.
