Welcome to the MMSD Planetarium!
The Madison Metropolitan School District Planetarium (MMSD Planetarium) provides immersive experiences for groups and public audiences bringing out-of-this-world concepts down to Earth. The planetarium is a field trip destination for explorers of all ages.
In this multi-media theater, we can simulate the day and night sky on our domed ceiling to explore a vast array of concepts related to astronomy and space exploration. Public programs are offered on a monthly basis in the evenings throughout the school year. Group programs are offered during the school day, but a limited number of after school and evening programs may be scheduled as well. We also operate a telescope loan program.
