Weekly Planetarium Shows

$4 per ticket - Tickets available at the door starting at 6:30 pm.

Love space? Enjoy gazing at the stars at night? Ever wonder what it would be like to fall into a black hole? Find out at our planetarium shows. As always, shows are family friendly and open to anyone. You do not need to be and ODU student to attend.

Our shows typically last about an hour and start with a full-dome movie (schedule listed below). Each movie lasts about 20-25 minutes. Afterwards, we'll show the night sky including planets & constellations, fly through our solar system and visit other planets, traverse the Milkyway, and tour the Universe.

Recommended for ages 4 and up as you never quite know how infants and toddlers will react to a dark planetarium. Some love it. Some do not.

Cash, credit, or debit accepted at the door. Doors open at approximately 6:30.

No early reservations. Seating is first-come, first-serve.

Check our Location & Parking section for more info.

Full-dome movie descriptions are available below.
