Support the Space Centre

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

Inspire curiosity, celebrate a special occasion, or pay tribute with a dedicated star. 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 other corporate achievements, activities and rewards.

Inspire Your Friends And Family

The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is a place that facilitates dialogue about human ingenuity in space and science technology, both past and present. 
Astronomy, space sciences and exploration are about human culture, about how we explain our place in the Universe. That is the very core of humanity. The theories, discoveries, and stories cross scientific, cultural, and social divides and provoke thought and discussion about "our place amongst the stars."
