    One World, One Sky - SmallOne World One Sky

    January 9 - March 13 (*Except the weekend of February 27 & 28 due to LaserFest) | Saturdays at 11 am & Sundays at 2 pm

    One World, One Sky is a brilliant spectacle of light and color as the furry friends watch the stars twinkle over Sesame Street. Children attending the show can interact as they watch, draw constellations and count the time it takes the sun to set. The show aims to nurture a child's natural sense of wonder about the night sky while forging cross-cultural connections, and bridging kids across nations through a common bond in learning about the sky together. This show was a big hit with our public show audiences.
