Public Planetarium Shows

*Our Planetarium is currently out of commission. We are working diligently to get it repaired. We will update our website once the repairs are complete, please check back.

The UNK planetarium shows are free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  The shows are approximately 30-45 minutes, and may feature a tour of the current evening sky and/or a segment highlighting a particular topic of interest. All shows start at 7:00 PM.  Tickets reserving seats will be handed out at the door prior to the show. We graciously accept any donation of dry or canned goods for a local food pantry.

  1.  Only children 5 years and older will be admitted to public shows.   
  2.  We do not accept advance reservations for public shows. 
  3.  No food or drinks are allowed inside the planetarium. 
  4.  Cell phones should be off during a show and not used in any way. 
  5.  You will not be admitted once a show has started. 
  6.  You will not be readmitted if you leave during the show. 

We provide free educational shows to school groups and private organizations (minimum of 20 guests) during the Fall and Spring semesters. If interested, Request a Planetarium Show. (Due to planetarium software issues we will not be doing any private shows until it is repaired).
