Daily Planetarium Shows at Discovery Place Nature


January 14, 2017 to December 31, 2017

This event occurs daily, every weekday.


Explore the moon, stars and beyond in the new planetarium. Housed in the museum's original Charlotte A. Kelly Planetarium, the dome has been retrofitted with a new Digitarium Zeta planetarium system, with bench and floor seating around the dome. 

The daily schedule will include a mix of multimedia shows and seasonal star shows. Multimedia shows are full-dome video adventures that explore astronomy topics such as moon landings, space travel and more. Seasonal star shows will take viewers on a guided tour of the Queen City in winter, spring, summer or fall. Planetarium shows are included in museum admission, but space is limited. Request a ticket at admissions to reserve your spot. Mon-Fri., 9am-4pm; Sat., 9am-5pm; Sun., Noon-5pm.
