Science in a whole new dimension

Educational Films Presented by Primrose Schools

Add a whole new dimension to your field trip with a totally immersive 3D film experience. From the moment your students open their eyes to the digital clarity of The Hoglund Foundation Theater, they’re also opening their mind to some of the most fascinating topics that science and nature have to offer. Every minute matters when your group has limited time to explore, so our morning and early afternoon theater schedule includes shorter science films so that your students can enjoy an awe-inspiring experience without missing out on exciting learning opportunities throughout the Museum.
