Note that the planetarium is currently closed for the summer. Please check back in September.
The Madison Metropolitan School District Planetarium (MMSD Planetarium) provides immersive experiences for groups and public audiences bringing out-of-this-world concepts down to Earth. The planetarium is a field trip destination for explorers of all ages.
In this multi-media theater, we can simulate the day and night sky on our domed ceiling to explore a vast array of concepts related to astronomy and space exploration. Public programs are offered on a monthly basis in the evenings throughout the school year. Group programs are offered during the school day, but a limited number of after school and evening programs can be scheduled as well. We also operate a telescope loan program.
