Paul Dennis Science Hall

The Paul Dennis Science Hall encourages visitors to learn and explore various scientific disciplines with hands-on activities and interactive displays. Admission to the Paul Dennis Science Hall is free.

For kids of all ages and big kids at heart, we have super fun engineering and coding stations as well as interactive exhibits on how we perceive light. Our ViewSpace portal gives visitors the latest news and research from NASA in real time. Explore our solar system with several NASA simulators, and experience a Carolina hurricane in our Hurricane simulator.

Our premier exhibit, a historical mural titled, North Carolina: First Flight to First Step, takes visitors on a journey through North Carolina’s contributions in Air and Space innovation including the Wright Brother’s first flight at Kitty Hawn to the training of Apollo Astronauts at Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill.
