Robert J. Novins Planetarium

The Planetarium is open for in-person events.
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.
