Hayden Planetarium

Meant to be an immersive experience that not only educates but inspires,  the top half of the planetarium is a domed theater that plays a 25  minute film all about our earth and our cosmic neighbors.

Measuring an impressive length of roughly 100 feet, it’s equivalent to  three school buses or a Boeing 737-500. The visual impact is remarkable  to say the least.
