Coming Soon to Longway Planetarium

The last day of shows in the dome is December 30, 2014. Construction for the brand new, full dome theater will begin January 5, 2015. There will not be public star or laser shows during this time. There will be shows for field trips in our Portable Dome Theater. We hope to open the radically different, jaw dropping, new theater in May 2015. Check back soon for a date.

When the NEW Longway Planetarium Theater opens, we will show:

  1. Into the Universe (live show –  will include night sky section and a ‘powers of 10’ voyage into the universe)

  2. To Space and Back

  3. Violent Universe

  4. Perfect Little Planet

Our Summer Schedule will be:
Monday-Thursday at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm and 3:30pm
Friday at 11:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm, 7:00pm, and 8:00pm
Saturday at 1:30pm, 2:30pm, 3:30pm, 7:00pm, and 8:00pm
