Thankful Thursdays sponsored by BAE Systems

The Vanderbilt Museum & Planetarium are proud to present Thankful Thursdays!

On Thursday, November 16, BAE Systems also invites visitors to make donations to its annual Holiday Toy Drive to benefit the Family Service League. Those who wish to donate are asked to bring new, unwrapped toys for deposit in a collection bin.

On several Thursday evenings throughout the year, we invite you to join us for a FREE family-friendly planetarium show. After the show, we will open our observatory to the public and an astronomy educator will invite you to look through a telescope at the night sky (weather permitting).

Funding for this series is generously provided by BAE Systems.
