The facility is only open for specific presentations, or by appointment. Presentations can be arranged for groups such as scouts, classes, dorms, clubs, office staff, parties, etc. (minimum $60). The facility has seating for 45 plus floor space for about 10 more. Because of staffing and logistic issues we rarely offer public "walk-in" shows.

To schedule a presentation for a private group, choose an open date and time on the calendar, and then fill out and send this handy presentation request form, or email to contact one of our current guides. Confirmations may take up to 48 hours to be posted to the web.

There are lots of stairs to climb up to the planetarium but an elevator is available if needed.

Assistive Listening Devices available upon request.

Presentations typically last about an hour. There are many specialty show topics including American Indian Starlore. For detailed descriptions of the programs please consult with your guide in advance. Faculty members may want to begin by consulting our instructional vignette program guide for examples of demonstrations.
