South Carolina State Museum representatives announced their new exhibits opening this summer, and they are “out of this world.” Kicking off what the museum dubs its “Cosmically Cool Summer” is the premiere of a new 4D movie.

Fly Me to the Moon 4D will include wind gusts, seat vibrations, feet ticklers and more. Guests will be treated to a space  odyssey like no other, traveling aboard the famous Apollo 11 spacecraft. The movie will include the voices of Kelly Ripa, Christopher Lloyd, Nicollete Sheridan and a cameo by Buzz Aldrin himself. This full body experience debuts Saturday.

The entire museum will be open Memorial Day weekend. Guests of all ages can explore South Carolina art, history, science and technology, including a variety of planetarium shows like Laser Salute to America. The show celebrates the spirit of America and honors its heroes through patriotic songs by various artists set to laser lights, including: “Only In America” by Brooks & Dunn, “ROCK in the USA” by John Mellencamp, “Living in America” by James Brown and “Where the Stars and Stripes and the Eagles Fly” by South Carolina’s own Aaron Tippin.

Both shows are family-friendly. More information about the exhibits can be found on the SCSM website.
