Museum of Science

In the Mugar Omni Theater, the world's largest film format is projected onto a five-story-tall IMAX® Dome screen. It wraps audiences in larger-than-life images of flora, fauna, and faraway places. A state-of-the-art digital sound system completes the immersion effect. 


Offering a starry dome and much more, the Hayden Planetarium provides daily departures for outer space. Audiences can glimpse everything from actual images of cosmic phenomena to universes we can still only imagine.

3-d Digital Cinema

The Museum offers film presentations in 3-D with its state-of-the-art digital projection system. Using polarized light rather than traditional red/blue lens filters, the high-definition system offers Museum audiences dramatically crisp images and an exciting presentation format to experience while in the Exhibit Halls.
