Enjoy a rotating selection of planetarium shows at the Museum of Natural History daily at 2:00 PM in July and August.

Monday through Wednesday: Sky Views Planetarium Show
Explore the night sky. Take a tour of the skies and discover the constellations, planets, nebulae and other stunning night sky objects that can be seen in the night sky. Video imagery will bring viewers up close to black holes, star-forming nebulae and more, showing discoveries in astrophysics while instilling a sense of wonder about our universe.

Thursday and Friday: Solar System Oasis Fulldome Show
Take a voyage through the Solar System in search of water, the key ingredient to life on Earth. The program is followed by a brief tour of the night sky, using the planetarium’s Zeiss star projector.

Saturdays and Sundays: Cosmic Collisions Planetarium Show
Take a thrilling trip through space and time–well beyond the calm face of the night sky–to explore cosmic collisions, hypersonic impacts that drive the dynamic and continuing evolution of the universe. This show explores the full range of space collisions, past, present, and future. Show produced by the American Museum of Natural History.

Cost: Planetarium admission is $3 per person, which includes admission to the Museum. Space is limited, so early arrival to purchase tickets is recommended.
Please note: Entry to the planetarium is not permitted once the show has begun. Children under age 4 are not permitted in the planetarium.
