- Groups must comprise at least ten individuals.
- We provide shows for non-profit civic organizations and for school groups in grades K-12. For grades 8 and under we request that one adult chaperone per ten students be included in the group.
- The planetarium seats 47; for reasons of safety groups may not exceed this number (including chaperones).
- Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the requested date.
- The planetarium is closed from mid-May to mid-August.
