Planetarium shows run approximately 35-45 minutes. The theater is "looped" with a magnetic loop system that enables individuals with Telecoil-equipped hearing aids to fully enjoy planetarium shows, thanks to the New Hampshire Academy of Audiology and Oticon. Tickets to planetarium shows will be sold until approximately 10 minutes before scheduled show time. Please plan accordingly! Always check our calendar for the most up to date listings. We often swap out shows for special events.
From Dream to Discovery: Inside NASA
In this prizewinning planetarium show funded by NASA and produced by our friends at the Museum of Science in Boston, you'll get to join NASA engineers as they design, test and launch today's hottest missions into space. Witness the enormity of the new James Webb Space Telescope, the intensity of Goddard Space Flight Center's testing facilities, and the excitement of the New Horizons mission to Pluto and beyond!
Fifty years after launching our dreams into space, we’re left with a troubling legacy: a growing ring of orbiting debris that threatens the safety of Earth’s orbits.
Space Junk is a visually explosive journey of discovery that weighs the solutions aimed at restoring our planet’s orbits.
Experience mind-boggling collisions, both natural and man-made. Soar from the stunning depths of Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of our increasingly crowded orbits – 22,000 miles above earth. Join us as foremost expert Don Kessler, the “Father of Space Junk,” guides us through the challenges we face in protecting them, forging a new age of space discovery.
