StenniSphere, the museum and visitor center at NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center, will close its doors to the public, beginning Feb. 15.
Closure of the museum and visitor center comes as the INFINITY at NASA Stennis Space Center science and education project moves forward. Various exhibits from StenniSphere, resident agencies at Stennis and other NASA facilities are being moved into the INFINITY facility to prepare for an opening this spring. Details will be forthcoming.
StenniSphere opened to the public in May 2000 and has hosted tens of thousands of visitors each year since then. The facility housed 14,000 square feet of interactive and informational exhibits highlighting NASA’s space missions and the work of other key resident agencies at Stennis.
