Roving With Perseverance Exhibit - Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Event Date: 
Friday, February 18, 2022 to Wednesday, June 15, 2022
Perseverance Rover Selfie on Mars
Event Description: 

Catch Mars mania as a traveling exhibit visits more than a dozen towns across the U.S. with lifelike models of NASA’s Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter.

While NASA’s Perseverance rover and Ingenuity Mars Helicopter are hard at work exploring Mars hundreds of millions of miles from Earth, their “twin” models will be visiting museums as part of the “Roving With Perseverance” roadshow. As big as a car, with its camera “head” rising high, Perseverance’s six-wheeled lookalike towers over most visitors, while Ingenuity’s double highlights just how small the history-making rotorcraft is. The tour begins in October at venues on the East and West Coasts, then works its way inland.

Tour Dates:

Venues with full-size models are in bold; other venues have smaller-scale Perseverance models.
