Calling All Photographers!

We are producing our very own holiday show set to premier just in time for the 2014 holiday season...and we want YOUR holiday-themed photos and videos. We can't guarantee that all submissions will be used, but we appreciate all of much so, we will give "Admit 4" passes to everyone who contributes. Click the button below to get all of the details.

Summer Camps

Summer camps at the planetarium plunge campers into stimulating, engaging, educational projects that incorporate scientific inquiry to spark a life-long love of science as well build problem-solving and collaboration skills that translate to life-long success in all areas of life.

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.
