Artemis Adventures

Artemis Adventures is a new interactive exhibit where young explorers embark on an out-of-this-world journey to the moon opening on January 27 at Discovery Cube Orange County! This fun encounter transports guests to the surface of the moon, offering an immersive experience like no other.  Imagine a world where you live in a geodesic dome, dine on lunar-grown veggies, and take a weekend road trip in a lunar RV. It might sound like science fiction, but with Artemis Adventures you will discover that lunar living is not just a dream; it’s a daring adventure waiting to happen!  Your mission is to explore and visit exciting lunar destinations, just like real astronauts did during the Apollo missions. Navigate your remote-controlled rover across the moon’s surface to reach various checkpoints, each offering a unique scientific discovery or lunar landmark. In this immersive exhibit, you will become a lunar local, exploring the science, innovation, and imagination that will take humanity back to the moon and beyond as you learn how to thrive on our celestial neighbor, and prepare to unlock the mysteries of lunar living, one discovery at a time.
