The Hummel Planetarium renovations are still ongoing. We are adding extra seating and the new capactity will be around 196. We are also taking reservations for school groups and still have some openings for October 2013, November 2013, and December 2013. We will have the shows re-opened to the public as soon as possible.
We have added a new show for the younger ages called One World One Sky (Big Birds Adventure). Show information can be found under the school shows.
Our new school shows have been selected and added to the website. There are show descriptions and links to each trailer included.
The Hummel Planetarium is currently closed for public shows due to system upgrades. Please continue to check the website or call us for updates. We will update the website as progress is made. We are still reserving dates and showings for our school programs.
