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 the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science as part of the “Roving With Perseverance” roadshow.
The Perseverance & Ingenuity replicas will be on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science from November 19, 2022 through late spring, 2023.

Only 19 locations throughout the United States Museum and Informal Education Alliance.will be visited with this traveling exhibit. All the museums are members of NASA’s
