UWM Planetarium

The Manfred Olson Planetarium, located on the UWM campus, presents a variety of astronomy programs open to the general public. In addition, we offer planetarium shows and activities for private groups, such as schools, the Girl Scouts, and birthday celebrations.


The UWM Planetarium will be closed from December 19 to January 5.  Our next public event will be stargazing and AstroBreak on January 14th.  Have a happy winter solstice!

NASA released a years end video and it features Jean and the SOFIA crew!  Check out the video here!
