About the Planetarium & Science Center
Astronomy is the oldest of the sciences and the one which has held the strongest grip on our imagination over the centuries. The modern era of space telescopes and sophisticated space probes has brought with it a great expansion of our cosmic horizons and many surprising changes in our understanding of the universe.
All programs meet the criteria of enriching and expanding the classroom curriculum while providing a learning experience that cannot be duplicated in the regular classroom. The planetarium provides the opportunity to explore the wonders of the universe in an exciting and stimulating manner. Visitors will take imaginary but realistic trips through our solar system, as well as explore a variety of other astronomy-related topics.
