Passport to the Universe
Narrated by Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks, Passport to the Universe takes audiences on an interstellar odyssey that the New Yorker calls “as exciting as anything in a theme park.”
Journeying from our Solar System to the Virgo Supercluster and back again, you’ll get an astronaut’s-eye view of the incredible objects that constitute our Universe—and an inspiring reminder of the limitlessness of human imagination and ingenuity.
Planetarium shows may not be appropriate for children under 7, and we regret that we cannot permit any child under 4.
From our Solar System to the Virgo Supercluster, Passport to the Universe offers an astronaut’s-eye view of the incredible objects that constitute our Universe—including stunning new visualizations of the Orion Nebula derived from recent observations by the Hubble Space Telescope.
We may just be small specks of what Carl Sagan called “star stuff,” but Passport gives us humans plenty of big things to ponder. For example: For every star that we can see, there are 50 million more that we can’t. And that's just in the Milky Way!
Enjoy an electrifying fly-by of Jupiter, Saturn, and the star-studded spiral arms of our Milky Way galaxy...before plummeting back to Earth through a mind-bending black hole. Inside one of the largest all-digital planetarium domes on Earth, every seat is the captain's seat.
