Reserve a Planetarium Show or Event

  • We warmly welcome groups of all kinds to join us for special programs. Consider bringing your school, scout, or church groups, or host a birthday party, science club meeting or science camp at the MSUM planetarium. Choose from live shows presented by a trained lecturer and adapted to fit your needs, or full dome educational movies designed specifically for planetariums, followed by a short live presentation.
