Planetarium Information

In addition to serving as the Icon for the Institution, our Planetarium Dome, presents shows throughout the day, every day, is equipped with not only high definition video projectors and surround sound, but a laser projector and our original 1966 SPITZ Space Transit Star Projector.

Unlike any other in South Florida, the Museum’s Planetarium is a unique setting for bringing the stars and planets indoors in animated live star shows and music-filled laser light shows.

The Weintraub Observatory houses two powerful Meade telescopes. At 7:00 p.m. each first Friday of the month a free Planetarium show precedes Observatory session. This once a month free star show is not dependent on the weather as is the Observatory. Observatory hours from 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Peer through the telescope to view the planets, the four moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and deep sky objects such as galaxies, nebulas and double stars.
