'Holiday of Lights' Show at Flandrau Science Center

Come see Flandrau Science Center's annual family favorite "Holiday of Lights" show during this holiday season, and feel the seasonal sparkle! A classic planetarium presentation, "Holiday of Lights" weaves together the astronomy of the winter solstice with the history of light festivals across times and cultures in celebration of the spirit of renewal.

In addition to seeing "Holiday of Lights," bring the whole family to ring in the season with Flandrau's "Laser Holiday" laser light music show, full of your favorite Christmas and seasonal songs that will leave everyone humming and smiling.

Admission to the show also includes all the science center's fun, hands-on current exhibits. The "Exploring Sky Islands" exhibit will take you from our desert basins up to the pine forests atop Arizona’s tallest mountains. In "OSIRIS-REx Presents: Great Balls of Fire" you’ll learn all about asteroids, comets and meteors through interactive exhibits and games. You’ll also enjoy "100 Years of Arizona’s Best: The Minerals that Made the State" – an Arizona centennial exhibit featuring amazing Arizona minerals and history. Plus, on the center's lower level, see the UA Mineral Musuem, one of the top five university mineral museums in the country.

If you’re looking for gift ideas, you'll find great educational toys and gifts in our gift shop, and you can purchase Flandrau gift certificates, memberships or laser show tickets for family and friends for the holidays.
