CLEVELAND  (November 1, 2019) – Snoopy, the world’s most famous beagle, is coming to Great Lakes Science Center on Thursday, November 7 to help celebrate NASA’s mission to land the first woman and next man on the moon. 

NASA’s Glenn Research Center will make the day extra special by presenting free admission for all Ohio schools. 

Snoopy, and his creator the late Charles Schulz, helped capture the spirit of the Apollo missions in the 1960s and ‘70s through his adventures in the Peanuts comic strip. Now, as NASA prepares to send astronauts back to the moon as part of the Artemis program, Snoopy is back in action to share in the excitement. 

In addition to Snoopy’s appearance, the Science Center and NASA’s Glenn Research Center will present space themed demonstrations, live big science shows and a special program entitled “Forward to the Moon 2024: Engaging the Artemis Generation.” 

Don’t let Snoopy blast off without you! Special activities for the day are scheduled between 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Visit for more information. 

(Editor’s note: The Science Center’s fall-winter schedule is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. The Science Center is closed on Mondays and during all Cleveland Browns daytime home games.)
