Before you go.

National Geographic Live is not a movie; it's a speaker series.

Here are a few other things you should know before attending the next event:

  • It's family-friendly! All events are appropriate for children, ages 8 and up, unless otherwise noted.
  • Speakers will present their photographs, videos, and experiences for about 90 minutes, with no intermission.
  • Doors open one hour prior to each performance. All guests must pass through security metal detectors and bag searches. We recommend use of small purses or clutches.
