The Glenn and Carol Arthur Planetarium, located at the Earth to Sky Park in Burnsville, NC, will now wow audiences with traditional astronomy shows to other STEM education shows all underneath a 36 ft projection dome. Comprised of 60 seats beneath the dome, the planetarium is a multi-use destination for visitors, residents, school children, and Mayland students.
The Arthur Planetarium is handicap and wheelchair accessible with handicap parking available in front of the Visitor's Center.
A large part of the mission of the Earth to Sky Park is to offer environmental education opportunities to K-12 students and work with teachers on hands-on activities that correlate with curriculum being taught in the classroom.
The Arthur Planetarium, much like the Bare Dark Sky Observatory, may be rented for a private group. Experience the wonder of the universe in the comfort of reclining chairs and climate control even in the daytime! Open to groups up to 60 people, the Arthur Planetarium provides a unique learning and entertainment opportunity for all ages!
