Visitors can enjoy fascinating films such as:
Solar Superstorms is a new production featuring one of the best efforts ever made to show how the sun works. Audiences will see violent solar tornadoes, the sun raging in a dramatic flare, and the largest eruptions in the solar system.
Narrated by Tony Award-winning actress Lea Salonga, Expedition Reef digitally recreates coral reef environments to offer a one-of-a-kind experience. It takes viewers under the water's surface to learn how corals live, breathe, and reproduce. The film also features a team of scientists who are working to develop sustainable solutions to improve these important ecosystems.
Passport to the Universe
During Passport to the Universe, Tom Hanks takes everyone on a journey through the universe and deep into galactic space. It was developed by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and before the conclusion, audiences enjoy a free-fall through a black hole.
To Defy Gravity
To Defy Gravity is an incredible film that celebrates the Apollo astronauts' exhilarating adventures on the moon. They are the only people to escape the bonds of Earth's gravitational pull, and their historic mission will never be forgotten. The film also explores the other worlds in our solar system and imagines how humans could live there.
