An immersive journey through the stars is coming to Tsawwassen next month.

Starting April 13, Tsawwassen Mills will host Stargazer – An Immersive Universe, a “fully immersive, sensory-focused visual exhibition” partially curated by HR MacMillan Space Center Vancouver and featuring interactive projections, virtual reality, and realistically accurate replicas. historical versions include a real scale version of the Apollo Lunar Module.

The exhibition will be in the recently closed former Sensea Immersive exhibition house Da Vinci Experience (5000 Canoe Pass Way, Tsawwassen, near entrance 3, between Marshalls and Winners).

“We are excited to bring this exciting world premier exhibition to the Vancouver area in collaboration with the HR MacMillan Space Center and the Ingenium/Canadian Space Center,” Mick Kelly, co-founder of Sensea Canada, said in a press release. “This is a very interesting, entertaining and a topic that has puzzled and captivated mankind for centuries.”

“This is a great opportunity to bring the excitement of space science and exploration to a new community,” added Lisa McIntosh, director of learning at HR MacMillan Space Centre.

The hour-long experience will include 270-degree immersive space, a detailed timeline of the space race, and many replicas of famous rockets, space stations, and satellites.

“Being featured on Stargazer helps [Ingenium Canada] reach, connect and engage with new audiences, and affirm Ingenium’s role as a trusted resource in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math education) ecosystem across Canada,” said Kelly.
