  • Overview

    Due to the COVID pandemic as well as undergoing renovations, this site is currently closed until the Fall 2021. Have fun and learn at the same time while you look at the wonders of the sky. Planetarium programming centers around the sky phenomena and connections with historical events. The Planetarium features a projector with 2,354 stars and offers five programs geared to specific grade-level curricula or K-12 school groups, including astronomy ans space science programs for Boy and Girl Scouts. General programs are offered to the public when time permits. Call ahead to arrange a visit to the facility's observatory. The public can visit during open house hours and (unless otherwise noted) during scheduled shows that are listed on the website. The planetarium features a 30-foot dome on which the images of 2,354 stars are projected. New to the building is “The REEF at FSU,” which features two aquariums and a touch tank. REEF visits can be scheduled through the planetarium. Admission: $1 for planetarium and $2 for the REEF
