Sensory-Friendly Planetarium Shows

Closed due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Sloan Museum and Longway Planetarium will remain closed to the public through Monday, April 13, in compliance with Governor Whitmer’s executive order for temporary restrictions on the use of places of public accommodation. During this time period, all public shows, exhibits, events, and programs are cancelled. We will continue to closely monitor the latest developments regarding the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus, and will provide updates on our closure status.

While we're closed, check out our Daily Dose of Science and Astronomy videos! We’ll show you fun science activities you can do with common household items, and stargazing tips using the night sky renderings you’d normally see in the planetarium.

Join us every second Saturday of the month!

During sensory-friendly shows, we turn the lights up and turn the sound down to provide a safe, welcoming environment for our friends with special needs. Be yourself and find the best spot in the house to enjoy the show!
