February Friends' Weekend: Darwin and Evolution

Darwin’s portrait by Richmond Charles Darwin was one of the most influential and disruptive scientists of the modern era. Born on the very same day as Abraham Lincoln – February 12th, 1809 – Darwin ignited a firestorm of controversy with his theory of evolution by natural selection. This month, the Friends of the Planetarium will be observing Darwin Day for the second year in a row with a weekend devoted to Darwin and Evolution. Join us for a screening of a full-dome planetarium digital program, a lecture about the possible evolution of life on other planets, and a full-dome movie that teaches children about the cells in our bodies.

Admission for these shows is $3 for children and seniors, and $5 for adults.
