Audio Descriptions Available in the Dome

  • The Science Museum of Virginia has partnered with Virginia Voice to create recorded audio descriptions for select Giant Screen Films and Planetarium Shows in the Dome theater. Audio description is an additional narration track that verbally describes what is happening on the screen during pauses in dialogue. Audio description is accessible for guests who are blind or low vision through a receiver. If you would like to check out a receiver, notify Guest Services when you purchase your Dome ticket. For a listing of which films offer audio description, please contact us.


Service Animals

  • Service animals are welcome on all levels of the Museum.
