Observing With NASA

Visit Western Spirit and Take Home a Star!

“Thanks to the collaboration between NASA and Western Spirit: Scottsdale’s Museum of the West, kids and their families will be able to take part in hands-on experiences that will  hopefully inspire the next generation of space explorers and continue Arizona’s legacy in our country’s space program.”

– Senator Mark Kelly

Western Spirit is proud to be one of only 10 museums selected to host an interactive “Observing With NASA” (OWN) kiosk through the end of August. Developed by NASA and the Smithsonian Institute, visitors to this touch screen kiosk will choose from a range of activities and engage with the actual tools, data, and skills that NASA scientists use to create awe-inspiring images of deep space objects. Images can be emailed directly to visitors’ devices for further study, as artworks and keepsakes, and to appreciate the wonder and beauty of the universe. Western Spirit’s “OWN” kiosk is educational and filled with summer fun for the whole family!
