Plan your Visit or Special Event

The Wayne State University Planetarium offers shows for the Wayne State University community of students, faculty and staff; K-12 schools; Math & Science Centers; special interest groups and community organizations; and, the general public. 

Would you like to bring your club or special group to our planetarium?  We would be happy to help you "design" a special planetarium event!  For more information, contact outreach@physics.wayne.edu or call 1-313-577-2107.

Here is a preview of the exciting programs we offer!

Our planetarium shows consist of three parts: interactive demonstrations, the current night sky, and a fulldome film

We begin with an interactive demonstration: Learn about "size and distance" in our Solar System. Watch, as we compare the diameters of Earth, our Moon, and Mars, and show you how to determine the distances between these celestial objects.

As the lights go down, learn how to navigate the current night sky and how to identify constellations, asterisms, planets, and more!

Next, sit back and enjoy a fulldome film!
