Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Flights of Fancy Story Time - "Mission to Mars"

Gather your little ones for story time with the National Air and Space Museum.

Museum educator Ann Caspari will read the original story “Mission to Mars”. We have sent landers and rovers to Mars, but we never have sent humans to explore the Red Planet. We return to our three friends as they imagine what it would be like to plan a trip, build a rocket, and travel on a mission to Mars.

We’d love to see your crafts! Share with us on Facebook, Twitter (@airandspace) and Instagram (@airandspacemuseum) using #AirandSpaceAtHome.

Flights of Fancy Storytime is made possible through the generous support of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
