Public ShowS

The planetarium offers public shows on second and fourth Saturdays at 11 a.m. (full-dome planetarium feature), 1:30 p.m. (full-dome planetarium movie), and 6:30 p.m. (laser show), throughout the year on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets can be purchased at the door by cash or check. We cannot accept credit cards.

A Star Theater show includes a special feature from our extensive program library and a live tour of the night sky under our full dome. Our shows include full dome planetarium features on various science topics and laser shows. As weather permits (the sky is clear and the temperature is warm enough), we offer opportunities to view the night sky with telescopes as it gets dark on our public show Saturdays. Our crew are MSU undergraduate students, so we occasionally modify our schedule during the final exam or break periods.
