How did life on Earth begin? Find out on this journey through time. Witness key events since the Big Bang that set the stage for life. See the first stars ignite, galaxies coalesce and entire worlds take shape. On a young Earth, two scenarios for the dawn of life are presented — one near a turbulent, deep-sea hydrothermal vent, and the other in a primordial hot puddle on a volcanic island.
Planetarium ticket prices vary from $4 to $10 and do not include museum general admission. Buy tickets at anchoragemuseum.org.
