About the Planetarium

Our 60-seat planetarium is a large, round room with a 24-foot giant dome where the sky (sun, moon, stars, planets, etc.) is projected.

We have upgraded from an Analog Spitz Projector to a digital ePlanetarium Discovery Dome (pictured above). We may now project full dome videos and take star exploration to the next level!

Take up close trips to planets, nebula, and other celestial phenomena. Daily shows automatically update for 10:00 pm each night, stargazing nights are set to update by the minute.

The planetarium doubles as a theater for movie nights, laser shows, video game tournaments, or other special presentations. Planetarium shows topics change monthly, but private shows are available and may be the topic of the viewers choice. Ask our front desk for more information on private shows.
