Taylor Planetarium

Join us for a breathtaking view of the cosmos!

View Taylor Planetarium Video

The Taylor Planetarium offers Digistar 4K digital projection on a 40-foot dome. Developed by Evans and Sutherland, this state-of-the-art projection system allows visitors to experience our universe and our world in vivid colors, dramatic motion, and brilliant displays of light. The planetarium has a 40-foot dome and 85 seats, which recline at different angles depending on the seat's location within the planetarium.

Planetarium shows vary with seasons, are shown daily, and are included with admission. Audio or video recording of planetarium shows is strictly prohibited. Food or beverage is not allowed in the planetarium.

The planetarium seats on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the doors opening for seating 10 minutes before the scheduled showtimes. Please note, the doors will close precisely on the hour to start all shows, and admission cannot be allowed after that time due to the dark conditions and safety concerns. All shows and showtimes are subject to change or cancellation without notice.

The planetarium is open year-round except for when the main museum is closed.

The Moon will rise with the eclipse starting (8:40 p.m. MST), and at 9:29 m. when the Moon will be completely overtaken by the Earths' shadow.
