On Friday night, the center is hosting "Dawn of the Space Age."
"That is a planetarium program that looks at the history of space flight, from Sputnik through modern exploration. It includes a special piece about the landing on the moon," said Director Shawn Laattsch.
The show begins at 7 p.m.
The center also will present a kids moon exploration event on Sunday.
Tickets can be bought both in advance or at the door for Friday's and Sundays' events.
