Family Weekend

Oct. 11, 2019

This year Flandrau will welcome all families for UAZ Family Weekend starting on Friday, October 11 and going through Sunday, October 13 with special pricing for everyone: $4 exhibits admission and $4 planetarium shows!

Don’t miss Flandrau at the “Family Weekend Welcome Tent” on the University mall all day on Friday, Oct 11, and from 4pm until game time on Saturday, Oct 12. You can learn about what we offer at the Welcome Tent, then stroll down to our building and marvel at our Sharks exhibit, explore the planets in our Solar System exhibit, and experience one of our amazing planetarium shows!

The University of Arizona leads the way in many fields of science. At Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, we tell the stories of UA’s science achievements, the stories that set UA apart. We invite the campus community to come explore all the science we have to offer, from Sharks to Space, and see why Space Is Wildcat Country!

Special Pricing
For all families and visitors: Only $4 for exhibits and $4 for planetarium shows. Special pricing runs all three days from Friday, October 11 thru Sunday, October 13.

Guided Tours and Special Arizona Shows
For the first time, Flandrau will offer scheduled public guided Tours that we call Flandrau Guided Tour: Arizona Science Wonders. We’ve given these special Tours for group visits before, but we’ve never offered them to the general public, and Family Weekend is the perfect time to start! Sign up for this special tour on our website soon!

The Flandrau Guided Tour: Arizona Science Wonders gives you the stories behind the exhibits. You’ll discover how the University of Arizona became a world leader in astronomy, earth science, ecology, and planetary science – and why we say with pride “Space Is Wildcat Country.” In addition to the guided exhibits tour, participants will also see a private showing of Touring the Solar System: UA Edition, a specail planetarium show not available to the general public.

Reserve your space on the Arizona Science Wonders Tour, offered on Friday Oct 11 at 1pm and on Sunday, Oct 13 at 10am. Tickets available below!
Member discount does not apply to Arizona Science Wonder Tours.

New Mars Planetarium Show
Our new Mars show, Next Stop: Mars will fly you to the red planet and give you the scoop on all that we’ve discovered there. The University of Arizona has played a role in every single NASA mission to Mars! And we’ve even led some of them. You’ll learn why Mars has captivated humans for millennia, what the new science tells us, and what it would take to send humans to Mars.

Join the fun at our Family Weekend celebration! Flandrau – cool science on a hot day.
