Kirkpatrick Planetarium


Your Own Personal Tour of the Galaxy

Wouldn't you like your own personal tour of the galaxy? From our own solar system to the farthest reaches of the universe, visitors to the Kirkpatrick Planetarium can create their own adventure alongside our astronomy experts — no two live shows are exactly alike.


Utilizing the latest digital technology paired with direct links to NASA, we can take you where no one else can...

And bring this morning's scientific discoveries to you by lunchtime.


We're taking One Giant Leap toward a new planetarium.

Find out how you can be part of this exciting project!

Now Showing

"Journey Through the Cosmos"
Audience participation is a must for deep space travel! 
Come join us for our LIVE presentation as we look up into the night sky, cruise around the solar system, and maybe even see a galaxy far, far away. Choose your own adventure as we journey through the cosmos — no two trips are exactly the same! "Journey Through the Cosmos" is presented in Spanish at 3 p.m. on the first Sunday and last Saturday of each month.

"Viaje por el Cosmos" se presenta en Español a las 3 p.m. Se presentará el primer domingo y el último sábado de cada mes.

"Planetarium Spotlight"
Presenter's choice! Sit back as our planetarium educators showcase 
new content and a variety of specialized shows. Call on your sense of adventure and join us as we launch into the wonders of astronomy. This show may be a live presentation and discussion, pre-recorded footage, or a combination of both. 

"Our Changing Earth"
Earth is home to many diverse and beautiful ecosystems, powerful and dynamic weather, and millions of species of plants and animals. But how does it compare to our nearest cosmic neighbors? Has it always been this way, and will it stay this way forever? "Our Changing Earth" explores the changing climates found on Earth and other planets within our solar system, and takes a look into their past, present, and future as we compare them. Visit ancient and frozen riverbeds on Mars, experience the acidic rainstorms and intense heat on Venus, and breathe in the atmosphere of our own planet Earth.
"Forward to the Moon"
Artemis is the name of the NASA project which will return astronauts to the moon. The sister of APOLLO and the successor to that age of discovery, ARTEMIS will be our return to the moon, this time to stay. From concept to landing, exploration and ultimately colonization, Project Artemis is the future of NASA space exploration which ultimately leads to Mars. "Forward to the Moon" provides a wide view of the of Project ARTEMIS and the technology it involves.


"Two Pieces of Glass"
The invention of the telescope provided man’s first glimpse into the true nature of the Universe. But today with advanced technology applied to its use, we continue to open new vistas into the wonders that reside in the depths of the cosmos. From simple to extremely complex, telescopes remain our eyes revealing secrets we have yet to understand.


Join us as we head for stars! Show availability depends on the museum's hours. The first showtime is always the first hour after opening and the last showtime is an hour before closing.
