Robert J. Novins Planetarium

The Planetarium reopened for in-person events in June 2021.
We strongly recommend that you purchase tickets online, as tickets may not be available onsite. We have limited capacity in the building for your safety, and many of our shows sell out fast. If your preferred show is not available online, we hope you will join us another day! Purchase tickets online.

Explore the universe by seeing the stars and planets as you have never seen before with our Laser Shows, Sky Shows, and Full Dome Movies. Presenting a wide variety of fun and educational programs for all ages in our 103-seat dome theater, the Novins Planetarium is a gateway to learning about our earth, the solar system, and beyond. In addition to our public shows, the Novins Planetarium offers programs for school and camp groups, birthday parties, and special themed events.
