Hallstrom Planetarium

The state-of-the-art Hallstrom Planetarium offers lectures and shows about planets, constellations and stars. Planetarium shows are live multimedia presentations that use special-effect projectors to tell stories about the planets and stars. Seventy-one reclining seats with headrests allow visitors to view the heavens from the comfort of armchairs.

Hallstrom Planetarium celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. View the celebratory timeline.
