Gift Shop

The planetarium now has a small gift shop! We have a variety of astronomy & space sciences related items available. Books about astronomy and the sky will help you learn about the night sky and planispheres will help you know what you are looking at. We have items for kids and adults alike.

All purchase proceeds stay with the planetarium and help fund our public outreach program. Visiting the gift shop is free and does not require purchasing tickets for the show. We hope to see you soon!

Gift shop hours: Open every Friday from 6:15pm - 9:00pm
