Located on Jacksonville’s beautiful Southbank, MOSH (the Museum of Science & History of Jacksonville) is the only institution of its kind in the city. In addition to dynamic, award-winning exhibitions, the Museum houses the area’s only planetarium. Science and planetarium programs are offered daily.
SEPTEMBER 14 - DECEMBER 31, 2013
Great Balls of Fire is an immersive space adventure that allows visitors to enter a spacecraft and lead missions to comets and asteroids. The exhibit’s four main content areas are: Origins, Asteroids, Comets and Impacts. Visitors will be able to explore water impacts using a high speed camera playback system; see a valuable collection of meteorites that includes a 20-pound touchable iron meteorite; and learn about NASA’s planetary protection plans. MOSH is also home to the new Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, the largest single-lens planetarium in the world.
