Join astronomers in the search for a new ninth planet! When the New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto in 2015, it not only gave us our first close look at the dwarf planet, but encouraged new theories about how our Solar System formed — and what it may be hiding. Follow astronomer Mike Brown and his team as they uncover stunning dwarf worlds and attempt to learn more about an undiscovered planet orbiting around the edge of our Solar System. This astronomy feature is followed by a live presentation that allows you to explore the stars like never before!

The Science Museum of Virginia is moving to a new online ticketing system.
The great news is that our new system will make it easier than ever to buy your tickets online.
The bummer is we have to go offline while we make the switch.
So, starting Jan. 1, 2018, online tickets will not be available for a short period of time.
