Our popular $5 Friday Night Shows are open to the public and feature indoor stargazing plus a special topic that changes 5 times a year.
Buying tickets online is strongly recommended. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. If a show has not sold out, you may buy tickets with cash or credit card in the lobby outside of the Planetarium starting 30 minutes before the show begins.
Doors close 5 minutes after the show begins. No late admissions. If you purchase tickets online, please arrive at least 10 minutes before the show starts to check in at the ticket table with your last name. No-shows risk having their seats at the program start time.
Please note that planetarium shows require complete darkness and are not intended for children under 4.
