Planetarium Show - All Ages
Planetariums are not what they used to be. In our state-of-the-art theater, students are seated under a 50-foot dome where constellations are identified. Then, they can imagine being whisked through space as they view a multi-dimensional film exploring the universe. Shown throughout the year is a selection of presentations that begin on the hour. Admittance is not allowed after the show has started. Duration: 45 minutes. Click here for a list of planetarium presentations.
