Along with the public shows, the Planetarium runs private shows year-round. These shows are perfect for school fieldtrips, community groups, and even birthday parties. Private shows can be set up by a group of 10 or more people and are free of charge (donations welcome). The shows run an hour and are typically a combination of an Educational Program and a Dark Sky Show of your choice. To request a private show contact the Planetarium staff with a list of available dates and times for your group to attend and accommodations will be made. A minimum of a week advance notice is needed.
