Rose Center for Earth and Space

Rose Center for Earth and Space

Rose Center for Earth and Space 81st St and Central Park West
The Rose Center for Earth and Science is an independent museum that is part of the Museum of Natural History, but definitely worthy of its own mention. With director Neil deGrasse Tyson, the Rose Center contains the world famous Hayden Planetarium, originally opened in 1933 and recently redone in 2000. This is a fun place for adults and kids alike, fascinating even in its presentation, appearing as a an 87 ft sphere ‘floating’ within a glass cube. The museum has 3 main exhibits: the Big Bang Theater, offering a brief show about the birth of the universe; the Heilbrun Cosmic Pathway, an interactive walkway that displays a timeline of the universe since birth, among other displays; and the Hayden Planetarium, which hosts space shows as well as a real-time view of space from Earth. Other exhibits include 4 moon rocks, a large asteroid, an earthquake monitoring station, and a lot more. The center also has research and educational space. Entry is phrased as a ‘suggested donation,’ making the Rose Center possible on a budget.
