Friends of the MMSD Planetarium
Support the MMSD Planetarium, become a "Friend"!
To support the Madison Metropolitan School District Planetarium and its mission to educate and inspire people of all ages in areas of astronomy and science in general. The Friends of the Planetarium is a small community of people who are interested in astronomy and interested in supporting the planetarium in a fun way. Money generated through donations will go toward improving the planetarium’s ability to carry out its mission. And in return, "Friends" get to participate in some special events, and receive other minor benefits.
