The Planetarium

Experience the desert sky...inside and out!


The Planetarium Logo Yellow BackgroundWelcome to Southern Nevada’s only public planetarium, where the stars are literally the stars of the show. Our 66-seat theater features an Evans & Sutherland Digistar 5 high definition hemispheric video projection system. By creating virtual realities on our impressive 30-foot dome, we surround visitors with simulated educational and entertaining content in an environment that is unparalleled in Southern Nevada.

********Special Notice:   In response to recent developments associated with the COVID-19, public Planetarium shows are suspended.  As soon as we are able, they will resume.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and urge our supporters and patrons to follow all recommended guidelines to help limit the spread of this illness.  If you are looking for space-related content to help with at-home instruction during this time, click HERE for a pdf of the Planetarium's favorite links and educational websites.*********

We offer multidisciplinary field trips and private shows for a variety of groups across Southern Nevada.

Student Success

We provide CSN students, on a variety of career paths, a unique way to engage with their coursework.

Public Outreach

We invite the community to visit us during our weekend shows and special events as the only public planetarium in Southern Nevada.
