Omnifest 2014


Published:

Ever wanted to blast off into space? Get a look inside the human body? How about travel the waters of Mexico’s Guadalupe Island? It’s possible at the Science Museum of Minnesota.

Now through February 28, the museum is hosting its annual film festival, Omnifest, presenting five rotating films in a larger-than-life way on its 90-foot domed screen—one of only four of its kind in the world—putting you closer to sharks, volcanoes, cultures and athletes than you ever thought possible.

Great White Shark teaches viewers about the ever-intriguing species, while Blue Planet is packed with footage from space shuttle missions, showing how earthquakes, typhoons, volcanoes and humankind effects the earth. In Stomp’s World Beat you’ll travel with the members of the famous stage show as they tour the world, exploring the sounds of different cultures. To the Limit shows the inner workings of the bodies of a rock climber, ski racer and prima ballerina, then Ring of Fire, a museum original production, takes you to the volcanoes of the Pacific Ocean, including Mount St. Helens and Sakurajima, and introduces you to the people that live in their shadows.   

Films are geared towards all ages and interests, making this a perfect family-day escape from the cold.

Omnifest tickets: First film: $8 adults, $7 children ages 4-12 and seniors, free for Science Museum members. Get a 15 percent discount on each additional film purchased for that same day. Advance reservations are recommended.
