Big History

Join the MMA's Scientist-in-Residence, Dr. Rich Blundell and Telescope Engineer, Gary Walker, for a weekly Big History Storytelling at Loines Observatory. "Big History," an academic discipline which examines history from the Big Bang to the present, has been pursued since the Renaissance.

This program is designed to be interesting for inquisitive adults.

Pre-registration is required for this event.


Cost Per Participant: $15


Cancellation and Refund Policy: We understand that plans change!  Because we are a small non-profit that benefits from the contributions made by our generous patrons and supporters, cancellations make it more challenging for us to manage program enrollment. Tickets are non-refundable, should you choose to cancel. However, tickets are eligible for an exchange before the date and time of the scheduled program subject to a $5 rescheduling service fee, per reservation, and program availability. If you wish to reschedule, please contact us at info@mariamitchell.org.

In the event of a complete event or program cancellation by us ticket-holders will receive a ticket exchange or refund. Requests for exchanges or refunds must be made in writing, and received, no more than seven days from the date printed on the ticket. Rescheduling is not guaranteed and is based on current availability. No refund or credit will be given if the ticket holder requests a time that is unavailable for any reason.

All offerings are subject to cancellation by the MMA at any time, with or without notice for reasons deemed necessary by the organization. In the event of a cancellation by us, we will make every effort to provide a ticket exchange at an amenable date and time to both parties and if we cannot, we will refund the purchase and credit the original payment method.
