The Discovery Center’s latest exhibit, Spy Science, is scheduled to open to the public on Saturday, July 2, according to a June 29 press release. It will remain on display through to Sept. 17.

The exhibit, which is sponsored by Marion Rotary Duck Derby, Ocala Electric Utilities, Fun4Ocala Kids and Duke Energy, will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Discovery Center, located at 701 N.E. Sanchez Ave.

“Discover the history, science and even the Hollywood connections within the spy industry,” museum officials said, “when this new exhibit takes visitors inside the world of espionage.”

Guests can go undercover as an “Agent of Discovery” to find out the secret identity of the spy villain and solve puzzles and challenges along the way. They can also learn how disguises help spies to catch the “bad guy” and even rescue people while crawling through the villain’s lair, looking for clues, creating their own secret decoders and more.

General admission to the Discovery Center is $8 per person or $28 for a family of four. Annual memberships are also available for individuals and families.

By reservation only, Starlab Planetarium shows are held on Saturdays and tickets are $30 per 10-person group. Guests are encouraged to call ahead to book a reservation time for the planetarium.

An alternative planetarium-like show, NASA Solar System Exploration, is also available for a $3 add-on to the price of general admission.
