• Create your own mission patch in the style of Apollo astronauts.
• Build and float your own mini command module to a safe landing from our second-floor balcony.
• Step into outer space in a mobile planetarium show.
• Snap an out of this world selfie on the Destination Moon green screen in a kid-sized astronaut suit.
