Statewide Star Party at the Bell!

Friday | April 08, 2022 | 8:30 pm10:00 pm


Recommended for all ages

Join us for the Bell Museum’s IN-PERSON Star Party! Centering on this year’s Statewide Star Party theme, “Shared Sky, Open Minds,” we will host a number of activities that reflect on cultural astronomy and encourage appreciation of our shared skies through various cultural lenses.

In our planetarium, our expert astronomy team will guide you through the night sky and highlight some cosmic sights. Then, explore constellations and celestial objects in hands-on activities that highlight the similarities and differences of space when viewed through another lens. Be sure to check out the We Are Stardust project videos shared by Native Skywatchers, and then continue the evening outside with telescopes on the Ruth & John Huss Observation Deck (weather permitting), where our astronomy team will guide you through observations of the same celestial objects that have inspired sky-gazers throughout history! Remember to dress for the weather!

Planetarium Showtimes: 8:30, 9:00, 9:30

Tickets for planetarium shows are available at the front desk upon arrival, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Registration is requested through Eventbrite.



Minnesota’s Astronomy Classroom programming is generously supported by Ruth & John Huss.
