Museums

Museums are one of the best places to experience astronomy, with hands-on exhibits and their own calendar of events. Use our online listings to find science and natural history museums near you, or near somewhere you’ll be traveling. Or add your museum so that our readers can find you and learn more about your exhibits — an art museum with a visiting astronomy-themed exhibit can find a home here, too.

Most of our listings are for U.S. locations, but you can search for or add a museum anywhere in the world.
