Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an astronaut? This 14-minute animated trip into space is a spectacular journey to the International Space Station. You will learn how to sleep in space, to cook astronaut food, take a zero-g shower - and use a cosmic toilet!

In the second half of the show, you will learn about what it is like to be an astronomer with an amazing live tour of the nighttime sky, its constellations and stars, plus a lesson on how to find the planets. This 30 minute show is recommended for kids ages 5 to 8.

From Earth to the Universe

Friday at 8:15 pm and Saturday at 4 pm.

Recommended for Adults and Children ages 8+; 45 minutes

The beauty of the night sky has inspired awe and wonder for as long as there have been people. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. Come revel in the splendor of the Universe from the planets in our Solar System, the colorful nebula and star clusters of the Milky Way, out to the glittering myriads of galaxies beyond. Along the way, visitors will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and the giant observatories that allow us to probe the furthest reaches of space. This 30-minute voyage through space is followed by a 15-minute tour of the night sky and planets.

Starlit Nights

Saturday at 5:30 pm.

Recommended for Adults and Children ages 10+; 45 minutes

In this fantastic live tour of the night sky, our astronomer will use the planetarium’s Digistar system to project tonight’s sky up on the dome. From constellations and stars to beautiful nebula and star clusters, we will point out what is currently in your night sky. We will show you where to find the moon and planets, as well as feature some of the latest astronomy news from our space telescopes and planetary probes. This show is approximately 45 minutes and is recommended for adults and children ages 10 and up.


Tickets for all shows are $10 per person. Online reservations are strongly encouraged; limited tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Please note all programs start promptly at the times indicated. For your safety, latecomers will not be admitted to the Planetarium theater once the lights are off, so make sure to arrive early and plan for any unexpected delays in travel and parking!
