Our 75-foot dome displays one of the most accurate digital Universes ever created. From faraway galaxies to the workings of our own planet, you'll experience the cosmos like never before.

The planetarium will be closed for maintenance Monday, October 23, through Wednesday, October 25. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Morrison Planetarium shows are fueled by cutting-edge scientific data, resulting in stunning visualizations of the latest findings, discoveries, and theories about our Universe. Every star or galaxy a viewer encounters in the planetarium precisely mirrors a real-world counterpart, and when this virtual cosmos is projected onto Morrison's 75-foot-diameter screen, the dome itself seems to disappear, resulting in a uniquely immersive experience.

Planetarium show tickets are included in the price of admission and can be reserved at the planetarium kiosk.

Note: Planetarium shows may not be appropriate for children 6 and younger, and we regret that we cannot permit anyone under 4.

Dome Details

Mimicking the tilt of planet Earth, the frame of the dome—composed of 100 percent recycled steel—supports a NanoSeam projection screen that seems to disappear when lit, creating a true-to-life recreation of luminous, faraway space and skies.
