The planetarium is closed during the summer. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the planetarium is closed for in-person visits, but we are now accepting reservations for virtual programs.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

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 can be scheduled as well.
