Abrams Planetarium does not accept credit or debit cards.

A current sky talk, using the Digistar projector, will follow all shows. Outdoor observing is held after evening shows as sky conditions permit. Telescopes in front of Abrams Planetarium offer views of selected astronomical objects.

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.
