The Aldo Leopold Nature Center

Announces Immersion Theater Grand Opening



Madison, WI.  Come visit us on October 28th at 12:00 noon for our ribbon cutting and the grand opening of our brand new immersion theater.


This new, state-of-the-art immersion theater at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center in Monona, WI is the only one of its kind in the entire United States, making it a true gem within the community. Its cutting-edge projection system displays a full complement of immersive software featuring data imagery from Earth to the furthest reaches of outer space, all driven from a touchscreen interface for user-driven and docent-led exploration.


"We are thrilled to be able to open this cutting-edge experience here in Monona," says Bob Miller, President and Executive Director of ALNC.  "Our staff leads the way in looking for and implementing the latest technologies in a way that helps to better bridge the gap between indoor technologies and screen-based learning and the natural world outside." 


This dynamic new theater will allow us to engage visitors in seamless interactive tours from the edge of the universe to the tiniest details on Earth, provoking questions regarding the nature of the universe and our role in protecting our fragile planet – our little blue marble.


Photos and other media information available upon request.

Private tours and media walk-throughs available – stories to be run on or after Oct. 28th.
