Omnifest

Celebrate the beauty of science on the biggest screen in town.

Omnifest, the beloved Science Museum tradition, is back! Catch five stunning experiences on the Omnitheater’s giant screen Feb. 24 through April 7, 2024.

This movie festival is like no other, featuring larger-than-life treks through unknown corners of the cosmos and playdates with nature’s cutest creatures.

During Omnifest, you’ll learn how science meets technology to protect the planet from asteroid strikes, discover what it takes to bring species back from the brink of extinction, cuddle up to some of  the world’s cutest panda cubs, dive deep into the awe-inspiring images of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, and so much more. Back-to-back showings every day mean you can choose one, two, or even all five in one day!
