Families are in for a once-in-a journey experience when MOSI launches its  new summer experience Cardboard Space Adventures launches Saturday. 

Cardboard Space Adventures takes a child’s dream — to turn a simple box into an amazing imaginary spaceship — and brings it to life on a staggering scale. A cardboard space station and alien city tower over guests’ heads. Inside, families can help build a life-size space rover, play a giant Space Invasion video game using controllers made from cardboard, explore a massive maze, and more.

Children age 17 and under who bring their own creation of a paper plate planet will receive free admission. And, their artwork will be added to MOSI's galactic art gallery. 

“Cardboard Space Adventures is all about imagination and creativity," said Johnny Scotello, director of exhibits at the Museum of Science and Industry. "When kids bring their paper plate planets to MOSI, we’ll put their planet masterpieces on display, so their creativity gets combined with more ideas from other kids. That gives us a whole galaxy of imaginary planets to discover.”
