Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium

Cultural Pass Participant!

The planetarium is a participating organization in this summer's cultural pass challenge sponsored by Vision Louisville. Basically, every child, 0-college, can come to one weekend public show at the planetarium at NO CHARGE! (And if the child is under 16, their chaperone gets in free). Click the button below for details.

Planetarium Summer Camps

Kids are having a blast at the planetarium's summer camps.

Don't worry if your child was too young for camp - we have Cosmic Explorer Workshops for 4-6 year olds starting up in September.

Check back for more details.

More About the Planetarium

 It's a short journey to the planetarium for Girl Scouts to take journeys exploring plants, rocks and soils to the wonders of water to being responsible with energy to learning about air and our atmosphere.

 

Boy Scouts can learn about constellations, stars, and the planets as well as light pollution at our planetarium shows...or they  can schedule a workshop offered in conjunction with the Louisville Astronomical Society to delve more deeply into the requirements of their astronomy badge.

The planetarium is an out-of-this-world venue for a special group outing or a special event! From weddings and family reunions to corporate events and business meetings, we offer a unique facility for a memorable occasion.
