Last Shuttles to Mars Exhibit Closes May 6

The Grand Rapids Public Museum’s FACING MARS exhibit closes May 6, but guests have a few more days in which to see it – and three special savings options to choose from:

  • Weekday:  MARS @ Mid-Day tickets….Visit Tuesday through Friday and get $2 off a MARS ticket with the purchase of general admission
  • Evenings:  MARS Madness Nights…This special evening package, offered May 1 – 3 from 5-9 p.m., includes dinner, general admission, special exhibit  admission and a planetarium show for $6.50 members/ $12 Non-members
  • Last Weekend:  Receive free general admission with the purchase of the $4 FACING MARS special exhibit admission on the last two days, Saturday, May 5 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday, May 6 from Noon – 5 p.m.

The exhibit, which closes at 5 pm on May 6, gives visitors the opportunity to learn about the concept of space exploration from the safety of Earth through 20 hands-on exhibit stations designed by the Ontario Science Centre.  Guests learn firsthand what it takes to plan and undertake a two-year trip to Mars and back, and ponder the exhibit’s opening and closing question:  “Would you go?” 

Typically, FACING MARS exhibit admission is $4 plus general admission and includes entrance into the Our Bodies in Space planetarium show.  (Admission is free to members.)  General admission is $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors, $3 for Students/Children 3-17, and free for children under 3.
