Legends of the Night Sky - Orion: Take an imaginative look at the stories and legends about Orion, the great hunter of the winter sky. This show is perfect for both children and adult audiences.

Experience the Aurora: Watch the winter sky come to life before your eyes. See a stunning seven-month time-lapse of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights, as it shimmers and glistens in a breathtaking display. Occurring when energized particles react with the atmosphere, this incredible natural phenomenon encircles Earth's poles to put on a magnificent light show.

Expedition Reef: Learn the secrets of the “rainforests of the sea” as you embark on an oceanic safari of the world’s most vibrant—and endangered—marine ecosystems.

Late Arrival and Reentry Policy

Due to the nature of the Planetarium shows and the need to keep the theater dark, guests arriving 5 minutes after the start of the show will not be admitted. Please plan on arriving a minimum of 15 minutes prior the start of the show to allow time to purchase tickets and be seated comfortably in the dome.
