Hall des Lumières, Manhattan’s first permanent immersive art center, is partnering with NASA to launch the limited-time exhibition Destination Cosmos: The Immersive Space Experience, and if you’ve ever dreamed of jumping on a spaceship and heading to outer space, this one’s for you.
Destination Cosmos: The Immersive Space Experience gives a whole new meaning to the world revolving around you.
Displayed throughout 13 different sequences, guests begin at Cape Canaveral and end in the universe’s outer reaches, traveling alongside a maze of stars, planets, nebulae, and supernovae along the way.
From starry skies filled with constellations to an inside look at the 1960s American Apollo missions, stunning images from NASA paired with an otherworldly soundtrack make for a unique voyage into space and time without actually having to leave Earth.
Plus, you’ll even get a close-up look at Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon, and you may even see a martian or two!
And while we’ll be able to see Jupiter in the night sky next week during the planetary alingment, this experience takes you right into the heart of the planet way after the astronomical phenomenon has already passed–you’ll also be able to glide across Saturn’s rings, a planet which won’t be part of the end of the month’s alignment.
Destination Cosmos: The Immersive Space Experience opens Friday, April 7 and will run through Sunday, June 4.
Tickets start at $25 for adults and $12 for kids ages 5-16. For more information you can visit their website here.
See for yourself what our fascinating universe looks like from a brand new perspective without ever having to leave Earth!
