Museum Pass Spotlight: McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center

Visit the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center

The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center, located in Concord, NH, is dedicated to the two astronauts who came from the granite state—Christa McAuliffe and Alan Shepard. The museum offers a range of permanent and changing exhibits that focus on astronomy, aviation, earth and space science, including full-sized replicas of Mercury 7 and Mercury-Redstone rockets, a 1956 XF8U-3 Crusader jet, and items from Star Trek movies, a planetarium, and an observatory. There is a museum shop and café on the premises.

The Bedford Public Library pass provides free admission to the exhibit galleries for up to 4 people. (Anyone wishing to enjoy a planetarium show will pay an additional fee per person.)
