UNA Planetarium & Observatory K-12 Programs

Planetarium"The Stars are for Everyone". Helen Sawyer-Hogg


UNA planetarium offers private programs for schools and clubs. We encourage those contacting us to have a range of dates in mind for the program and to keep in mind that availability is according to the teaching schedule of the planetarium director. Currently, for the 2023 Spring semester, the best availability for school and private programs are MWF mornings before noon, and Thursday afternoons.

Availability is the following:

Monday: 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Tuesday: 8:00 a.m. - noon

Wednesday: 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m.

Thursday: 12:00 a.m. - midnight

Friday: 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

We can also accommodate programs in the evenings (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) and weekends.

The planetarium can hold about 65 people.  Schools with larger groups can do multiple programs on the same day or schedule them on different days. We are happy to work with schools to make sure everyone gets to visit!

The fee is $3/student. Teachers and guardians who are required to drive kids do not get charged (within reason). Smaller groups may find attending a public night more convenient, or might consider finding another small group to also participate.
