Mysteries of Your Brain: Premiere
Thursday | October 15, 2020–Sunday | October 18, 2020
Join us for the opening weekend of our new planetarium show! It’s all brains, all day in the Whitney and Elizabeth MacMillan Planetarium.
Mysteries of Your Brain, 30 minutes
Recommended for ages 8+
Mysteries of Your Brain takes you on an immersive, animated adventure into the human brain, exploring how the brain works and what makes human brains so special. Your tour guides on this journey are a curious girl and her crow companion—together you’ll zoom along the paths of neurons, fly through brains and experience illusions on a grand scale. You’ll learn how your brain makes you you and that, ultimately, we each have the power to change our brains.
Showtimes: 10:15 and 11:30 am, and 1 and 2:15 pm. Tickets are available one week before showtimes. You can purchase them online: click the button below.

In addition to the planetarium program, enjoy ongoing activities in the Touch & See Lab. See how animals’ brains, skulls, and skills match up, and learn about how brains make each species different from the next. Explore similarities and differences in brain anatomy and examine real and cast skulls, as well as 3D prints of brain scans from the Olman Lab’s Brain Zoo project.
Throughout the debut weekend, get up close and personal with real brains and hands-on demonstrations at the demo counter in Touch & See.
