Book A Planetarium Show

In order to book a show, please email the planetarium director ken.murphy@smsu.edu with the following information: 

  • Name of school or organization,
  • person arranging visit,
  • age of visitors,
  • head count,
  • mailing address,
  • phone number,
  • date and time you would like to visit
    (you may want to pick more than one date and time in order of preference). 

To see a list of Planetarium shows with descriptions, click on one of the buttons below.

Your visit will consist of two parts:

  1. a multimedia program (from one of the show lists)
  2. a live segment where we go over the current night sky

All shows run about an hour.  If you have any special requests, let me know in advance and I will try to accommodate you. The cost of a weekday show is $50 with a maximum number of 56 visitors per show. Weekend shows run $100. There is no minimum group size, however the cost is the same. Weekend and evenings may entail an additional cost. The best time to request a show is on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays from 8:30 a.m. -  2:30 p.m. If the time you request is not possible, I will suggest the closest possible date and time. If these times don't work, let me know, I will try to work something out. If you would like to schedule a laser show, indicate so in your email. To book a tour of the SMSU Museum of Natural History and/or the SMSU Greenhouse, inquire in your email message. During the warmer months, we also have nature trails in our wildlife area on campus (see map).
