In the beginning . . .

H.R. MacMillan gave an anonymous donation to build a resource centre about Space and astronomy for the people of British Columbia. He would later be revealed as the generous donor and the Space Centre opened its doors on October 26, 1968.
Since that time, our goal has been to inspire sustained interest in the fields of earth science, Space science, and astronomy from a Canadian perspective. 
H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is a registered charitable organization 10681 2183 RR0001. 

Dedicate A Star

Strengthen your involvement by joining our Dedicate A Star – Star Dedication Program. This program is a unique opportunity to give a distinctive gift to family, friends, co-workers, or clients. It is a way to commemorate a birth, birthday, wedding, anniversary, memorial or tribute. Stars make great employee incentives, retirement gifts, or for other corporate achievements, activities and rewards. See Sample Messages
Star dedication prices range from $50 to $500 (or more) with the magnitude of stars becoming stronger with the high values. All star dedications are tax deductibles.
