Public planetarium shows are back!  We've spent the last month upgrading our software and cleaning our projector and we're ready to welcome you back to the planetarium.  

Our first public planetarium show will be held on Friday September 22nd at 7pm.  Public shows are free and open to everyone.  Seats are first come first serve, so we recommend you arrive 15-20 minutes early.  

Public shows are held every Friday throughout the school semester excluding November 24th.

Science Under the Dome returns Wednesday October 13th at 7pm in the Planetarium.  Join us as Professor Jon Carroll presents 'Drones and Social Science: the sky's the limit!'.  Reservations are required for this free monthly lecture series, RSVP now.

The Wayne State University Planetarium is pleased to present planetarium shows for the WSU community of students, faculty, and staff; K-12 school groups; Math & Science Centers; special interest groups and community organizations; and, the general public. If you are interested in bringing a group for a show, please contact us for more information and to schedule your event.
