Daily Planetarium Shows
Explore the moon, stars and beyond
One World, One Sky is a full-dome planetarium show that follows Sesame Street's Big Bird and Elmo as they explore the night sky with their Muppet friend from China Hu Hu Zhu. Together, they take an imaginary trip from Sesame Street to the moon, where they discover how different it is from Earth.
When Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu "travel" to the moon, they discover some basic but surprising scientific facts. For example, they can't fly a kite there because there is no wind. The fuzzy friends then excitedly realize that children like to fly kites in both China and the United States! Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu also teach each other how to say simple words such as "star" and "moon" in their native languages.
At the end of the show, Big Bird, Elmo, and Hu Hu Zhu pick a friendship star to remind them that no matter how far apart they might be, they can always look into the night sky and cherish their shared memories.
One World, One Sky is a brilliant spectacle of light and color as the furry friends watch the stars twinkle over Sesame Street.
Children can interact as they watch, drawing constellations and counting the time it takes the sun to set. The show aims to nurture a child's natural sense of wonder about the night sky while forging cross-cultural connections, and bridging kids across nations through a common bond in learning about the sky together.
Housed in the Museum’s original Charlotte A. Kelly Planetarium (formerly the Nature Dome featuring Grandpa Tree), the dome has been retrofitted with a new Digitarium® Zeta planetarium system, with bench and floor seating around the dome.
Planetarium shows are included with Museum admission. Due to limited seating, tickets are required for entry. Please request planetarium tickets at Admissions upon arrival. Tickets are given on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be requested online or in advance.
