National Geographic Live

Discovery Place Science and Blumenthal Performing Arts have joined forces to create a new and unique experience for Charlotte area "explorers." Investigate the natural world with National Geographic Live and connect with others who share your curiosity.

Discover an unspoiled wilderness of water crowded with layers of life with David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes, hear astronaut Terry Virts discuss his perspective from the International Space Station and go around the world in search of big cats with Steve Winter.

Before each evening show at McGlohon Theater, attend a pre-show party at Discovery Place Science to enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and conversation with other guests, play with hands-on exhibitions and further explore the speaker's topic.

Each speaker also will present a daytime school show at the McGlohon Theater, followed by an immersive experience at Discovery Place Science. Daytime shows are available at a discounted rate for school groups only. For details and booking school shows, call 704.372.6261 x300.
