Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are the general policies?

  • Food and drink are not permitted in the planetarium.
  • Once a show has started, if you must leave, re-admittance will not be allowed.
  • Be sure all electronic devices are silenced during the show.

How do I reserve a seat for a show?

We no longer use a sign-up process or reserve seats for regularly scheduled shows. Simply show up to attend.

How early should I arrive?

Generally, we recommned that you arrive 15-20 minutes early as admittance is on a first-come, first-served basis. The show begins promptly at the scheduled start time and the doors close five to ten minutes later.

How long is the show?

The shows are typically 1 hour  - 1 1/2 hours long.

How much does it cost to attend a show?

Most shows are free, but some have a nominal fee which will be indicated on the schedule. If no fee is listed, the show is free.

Can I bring young children?

We do not have any firm guidelines on children. If a child can remain reasonably quiet for the hour, then it is fine for that child to attend. We have had very young children enjoy the show before, but keep in mind that the subject matter is at the college level.
