The Gene Roddenberry Planetarium is hosting a series of free, educational programs for families and individuals through late July.

Because the programs are free and seating is limited, if you intend to go plan on getting there early enough to obtain a ticket 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. No child will be admitted unless accompanied by a parent or adult family member. For directions to the planetarium, click HERE.
