Occupying the introductory gallery that precedes Globeology is an educational element developed by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration called Science on a Sphere. Science on a Sphere is a global display that utilizes computer imagery and multiple projectors to project information about Earth onto a six-foot diameter sphere. The effect is that of a life-like hovering globe displaying animated content that covers information on topics such as atmospheric storms, climate change and ocean temperature. Science on a Sphere’s high-impact educational introduction is a synergistic complement to the exhibit and serves to prepare guests for the adventure that awaits them in Globeology.

Museum Admission and 3D Film tickets are only available for purchase in person.
