All of our facilities are closed now through April 30.

Take A Seat

As part of our celebrations honoring the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, HMNS is offering naming opportunities for our new Burke Baker Planetarium seats!  At $2,000 each, this gift will provide a comfy place for explorers of all ages to be inspired.

Naming a seat is a unique way to acknowledge your support of scientific initiatives and education at the Museum and to honor or remember a special individual. The designated honoree’s name will be engraved on a permanent plaque affixed to the beautiful, new Planetarium seating.

Seat assignments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis. Donations will benefit the Annual Fund. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.

Take a seat by visiting our donations page or by mail with the Mail-In Donation Form.
