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 that creates virtual realities on an impressive dome surrounding the audience.


We present different events and shows to the general public on weekends and to local schools on weekday mornings. In addition, the Las Vegas Astronomical Society calls our planetarium home, and the CSN college astronomy professors use the facilities during introductory astronomy courses.



School Field Trips offered: 9:30 am and 11:00 am (year-round)

Public Programs: Friday Evening: 6 pm, 7 pm and 8 pm

Saturday Afternoon and Evening: 3:30 pm, 6 pm, 7 pm and 8 pm
