(Victor Valley)–Family-friendly astronomy programs return to the Victor Valley Museum on Sunday, December 4, in the San Bernardino County Museum’s portable StarLab planetarium. Programs will begin every half-hour from noon to 3:30 p.m. StarLab programs, recommended for families with children over age 4, are free with paid museum admission.
“Stars form apparent patterns that we call constellations,” said Jolene Redvale, curator of education. “From anywhere in the northern hemisphere, everyone sees pretty much the same stars, but cultures build their own stories and myths about them. In StarLab, visitors can see projected constellations and hear stories about them from various cultural traditions.”
The Victor Valley Museum is at 11873 Apple Valley Road in Apple Valley. Admission is $5 (adult), $4 (senior or military), and $2.50 (student). Children under 5 and San Bernardino County Museum Association members are free. Parking is free. For more information, visit www.sbcountymuseum.org. The museum is accessible to persons with disabilities. If assistive listening devices or other auxiliary aids are needed in order to participate in museum exhibits or programs, requests should be made through Museum Visitor Services at least three business days prior to your visit.
