Blast Off Break Week
at The Strong® Museum
December 22–31

Spend your school break among the stars during Blast Off Break Week at The Strong museum from Saturday, December 22 through Monday, December 31. Craft an origami space shuttle and view space-related artifacts, including a Gemini 8 spacecraft in the Play Pals exhibit and a moon rocket tin toy in the Imagination Destination exhibit.

Then visit the Be the Astronaut exhibit. Join a crew of virtual experts—the scientist, the engineer, the navigator, and the doctor—to learn about spaceflight before heading out on missions in an interplanetary spaceship equipped with futuristic landers and rovers designed in collaboration with NASA. Learn what it takes to be an astronaut, check out real space suits, and more.

All Blast Off Break Week activities are included with general museum admission fees. Programs underwritten by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong. Be the Astronaut created by Eureka Exhibits.
