Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium will remain closed through March 30

Governor Whitmer has issued an Executive Order that temporarily closes Michigan museums. Therefore, Sloan Museum at Courtland Center and Longway Planetarium will remain closed to the public through Monday, March 30. During this time period, all public shows, exhibits, events, and programs are cancelled. We will continue to closely monitor the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus, and will provide updates on our closure status.

#SL_Daily Dose Science & Astronomy Videos
Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium’s educators and planetarium presenters are developing short, educational videos to inspire at-home learning while schools are closed. We’ll show you some fun science activities you can do with common household items, and some stargazing tips using the night sky renderings you’d normally see in the planetarium. Be sure to visit Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium on Facebook for updates.

For our first quick experiment about preventing the spread of germs, you'll need a bowl, water, pepper, and soap. Watch the video at
