Winter hours: Shows at 12:30 PM every day, and 3:30 PM Saturdays and Sundays.
Shorter days mean more night sky and fantastic stargazing. Whether you’re seasoned or just starting to explore, take a tour through the cosmoses in our Lyman Spitzer Jr. Planetarium. Our live presenters guide you through the visible stars, planets and constellations with tips for your starry night viewing. Filmed presentations offer a deep dive into astronomy subjects that can add a new dimension to your appreciation of the latest discoveries and ongoing advances with stunning images from NASA.
Winter hours mean we’ll have shows at 12:30 PM seven days/week, plus additional shows at 3:30 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
Please check our calendar for the title and to confirm the time of the show that you’d like to see.
Exceptions: There will be NO planetarium shows on Wednesday and Thursday, November 21 and 22 in celebration of Thanksgiving!
The final planetarium shows of the year will be a full dome video about the sun shown on First Night, December 31, 2018. Because of updates being made to the planetarium during the month of January, the museum will be closed and no shows will be offered. Please check our website frequently for updates on planetarium programming in 2019 once we re-open.
