Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

This is a closed, past exhibit; it is not available for viewing.

For our youngest visitors and their parents, Secret of the Cardboard Rocket is a delightful animated feature. Two children turn an old cardboard box into a rocket and blast-off on an awesome adventure with a close-up tour of each planet—including landings on Venus and Mars, a trip into the stormy clouds of Jupiter and the thrill of dodging particle swarms in the rings of Saturn. See what makes each planet unique and why Earth is such a special place to live. At the story’s end, you’ll discover the Secret of the Cardboard Rocket
