Bell Museum Space Fest 2023
Join us February 3–5 for Space Fest
Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live on Mars? How will we get there? What challenges will we face along the way? What have we discovered by sending spacecraft before people? Join us in exploring these questions and more through guest speakers from NASA and the University of Minnesota, demonstrations, and hands-on activities at the Bell Museum’s fifth annual Space Fest! The event kicks off on Friday night with a star party investigating our planetary next-door neighbor. Saturday and Sunday will be packed with activities, including special showings of the newest Bell Museum original production, "Mars: The Ultimate Voyage." Throughout the weekend, enjoy presentations by researchers and special guests (including a former NASA astronaut!) and space-themed activities throughout the building.
