How do I see a show as an individual or a family, rather than reserving as a group?
Up until August 22, 2016, we reserved by groups of larger than 10 or so, and individuals were welcome to join existing shows. However, with our new reservation system, individuals can register and pay for shows online, just as groups would.
May we eat in the Planetarium
Food is not allowed in the planetarium due to the risk of allergic reactions.
I have 80 schoolchildren coming. Is there an activity one group can do outside the Planetarium while the other group is inside?
If you have more than 60 people coming, break the group into multiple shows and reserve the aquarium as well so your group can rotate.
Is the Planetarium accessible for wheelchairs?
Yes, the front part of the Planetarium is. There are no steps between the dropoff point in front of Lyons Science and the front row of the Planetarium, and there is ample room in front of the projector for wheelchairs.
Is the planetarium available for birthday parties?
Please let me know what day and time you'd like to have. Keep in mind the following:
