Join us in Hamilton Missouri on May 2, 2023 for an Evening Under the Stars with Astronaut Karen Nyberg.
Dr Nyberg found 2 of her passions in the universe colliding when she took a needle, thread and 3 fat quarters with her to the International Space Station in 2013. A star quilt block was born and the Astronomical Block Project began.
Take a step inside the museum to see the results of that project and then step outside to see the night sky in a whole new light!
This ticket is good for entry into the Missouri Quilt Museum and all events of the evening including personal interaction with Dr Nyberg as well as telescopes and quilts on the front lawn of the museum. Light refreshments will be served.
This event is part of the Missouri Quilt Museum Evening Series. Ages 12 and up.
EVENING EVENTS will go as follows:
7-9pm VIP exhibit tours/meet and greet
9-10:30 Quilts and telescopes on the front lawn.
Refreshments throughout the evening.
Although Dr Nyberg will only be here for this one night event, the exhibit itself will open to all ages May 2nd and run through Saturday Aguust 19th.
