Manfred Olson Planetarium welcomes over 10,000 visitors in 2011
Thank you for your wonderful attendance. In 2011 the UW-Milwaukee Manfred Olson Planetarium welcomed over 10,000 visitors to its facility! 47% of our visitors were school groups, likely drawn to our programs because teachers appreciate the live programs that can be modified to suit their learning objectives. The public made up 22% of our visitors and private groups made up 14%, followed by University students, Girl Scouts, and observing.
