Through August 31, 2021

The planetarium is open year-round except for when the main museum is closed. Fall shows will be listed in mid-August.

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 leave a courtesy seat between you and another group in the Taylor Planetarium. 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.
