The Infinity Science Center is a non-profit organization that has catered to kids’ curiosity for the last 15 years. Located in Pearlington, Mississippi, the Infinity Science Center inspires and engages children in the deepest parts of the ocean and the farthest reaches of outer-space. This center’s main goal is to be an interactive space where guests can explore our planet and all it has to offer. By doing this, they are hoping they just might inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
About the Infinity Science Center
Almost 15 years ago, Infinity set its sights on helping young learners immerse themselves in the world around them. Infinity offers walking museum galleries, bus tours, historic sights, and live videos and presentations. They are open to students and teachers of all ages to foster curiosity. “By featuring role models – both heroic individuals and some of the region’s world-class research organizations – Infinity seeks to nurture a general populace.”
Events and Programs
Infinity features a full schedule of special events every day. As a bonus, every Wednesday seniors enjoy some awesome discounts. Another event you can look for is the NASA Stennis Space Center Bus tours. These tours are held Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Individual guests older than 18 must present a valid form of identification, while those younger must be accompanied by an adult. Bus tours are included in your standard admission fee, but seats fill up quickly! Make sure you arrive at least a half hour before your scheduled tour.
Tours last approximately forty minutes and offer a behind-the-scenes look at America’s largest rocket engine test facility, one of the most unique scientific complexes on Earth. Unless you work for the facility, this tour is really your only way of making it past the buffer zone. An experienced guide will be by your side the entire way, explaining the history and function of the facility. This center has been around since the 1960s and is home to the largest concentration to oceanographers in the world.
With summer hours being in effect, Infinity Science Center will be open Monday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission ranges from $15-18 for adults and $8-11 for children 4 to 13 years of age. Your ticket price will include the guided, behind-the-scenes bus tour to the Stennis Space Center. See a full list of amenities and visit information before you go.
