Planetarium

The Universe, from the comfort of a chair

Our state-of-the-art digital planetarium was designed as a virtual classroom into the universe for students of all ages. Since the spring of 2011, we have provided free K-12 field trips to local schools and educational groups, offered low-cost planetarium presentations to the general public, and rented the facility for private and special events.

The cylindrical, dome room of the planetarium is a prominent feature on the beautiful Spokane Falls Community College campus. Our vision for the planetarium includes promoting and serving science education in our community, expanding our local programming to schools and senior groups and offering in-depth night sky and telescope viewing.

One free homeschool showing occurs in the fall, winter and spring quarters. To request being added to the reservation, please email us. For homeschool and Pre-K reservations, please note that there will be the $50 educational rate charged for the reservation.
