Wonders of the Universe will also feature a life-sized comparison of NASA's Hubble and James Webb telescopes, showcasing their contributions to space exploration.

An invitation-only preview reception with an esteemed panel of hosts will be held on Wednesday, May 29. Wonders of the Universe will open to the general public on Saturday, June 1 at 9:00 am. Access is included in the cost of general admission.
