Welcome to Abrams Planetarium

Planetarium shows have ended for the summer due to maintenance and updates in the theater. Shows will return on September 19th. The planetarium lobby and business office will be open regular hours during this time.

The Talbert and Leota Abrams Planetarium, located on the beautiful Michigan State University campus, serves as an astronomy and space science education resource center for central Michigan. The planetarium is an outreach unit of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and as such, we support astronomy teaching on campus as well as offer a variety of planetarium shows to the public--preschool through senior citizens.
