Morehead Planetarium & Science Center
Although it’s a 30-45-minute drive from Raleigh to Chapel Hill, this is too cool to leave out. For more than 70 years, Morehead has been inspiring us to explore the wonders of space and science. Located at UNC Chapel Hill, Morehead Planetarium was the first and largest full dome planetarium in the South. From 1959 to 1975, nearly every astronaut who participated in the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Apollo-Soyuz programs trained in celestial navigation here.
