Tips to Enjoy Your Visit

Dollar Bill IconPlease bring singles if possible! Shows are cheap and sometimes it's hard for us to break large bills.

RestroomKindly allow time for your class to use the restrooms before the show starts to avoid the awkward situation of interrupting the program.

Alarm Clock IconOur shows sometimes sell out; please arrange to arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to ensure seating.

SnacksFood and drink are not allowed in the planetarium theater.

Crying IconSome aspects of the planetarium experience (especially the darkened room) may not be suitable for children under age five.

SitPlease remain seated during the program as the planetarium becomes very dark.

CellphonePlease turn off your electronic devices during the show.

PenguinLet students know in advance to dress in layers for their comfort. The theater is often too cool when it is hot outside and too warm when it is cold outside.

Question FrameEncourage your class to come with astronomy questions! It helps to have them written down in advance.
