The Public Show Experience

The Public Show Schedule is at the bottom of this page. 

Each show is followed by a Live Star Talk, where our Educator or Engineer will take you on a tour of what is in that night's sky, solar system, and beyond. Special requests are welcomed, so if there is a concept that you would like to explore, please let them know. You can find a list of our shows as well as descriptions and trailers for each of them HERE.
Tickets go on sale 45 minutes before each show in the main lobby. Reservations are not necessary for public shows. It is recommended to arrive at the Planetarium at least 15 minutes before each show to purchase tickets and be seated. Most public show experiences last between an hour and an hour and twenty minutes.
The Space Shop is open before and after each show for purchases. 
Free parking is available in the Perkins Lot beside the Planetarium.
EKU is able to provide interpreting services for individuals who deaf. We must receive a request for this service at least two (2) EKU business days prior to your intended visit.
