Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium are operating at full capacity. We have been working hard to prepare the planetarium for your arrival and we can assure you that you will have a safe and fun experience when you visit. Following CDC, state and local authorities’ guidelines, these are some of the changes you can expect:
1. Masks: Masks are optional for all visitors.
2. Stay Safe: Hand sanitizer will be available upon entry and throughout the space. When you arrive, please be ready to present your receipt on your mobile device or print your ticket. Staff will request your email address for contact tracing purposes. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and visit us when you’re feeling better.
3. Improved Air Filtration: Longway Planetarium's HVAC systems have been updated with UV filtration.
