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. See our Events Calendar for information about our exciting astronomy programs!


The UWM Planetarium will not have access to email from July 26-28 for a major campus-wide email upgrade.  Thank you for your patience. 

Tickets for Friday Night Shows will increase to $3 each beginning August 27.  Pre-purchase tickets now to keep the $2 price for a limited time!
