Find why in the sky

The new Zygmunt digital planetarium allows us to view brilliant night skies from anywhere in the world, visualize legendary constellations and fly through the Solar System to bring outer space closer than ever to the City of Good Neighbors.

To make room for the arrival of our newest traveling exhibit, public planetarium shows will be temporarily unavailable. Our final date for public shows in 2019 will be Wednesday, October 30.  

Bring the Zygmunt digital planetarium to you! To reserve for groups or private use, please contact our Group Sales and Reservations Coordinator at  716.896.5200 x338.
