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!
