Group Visit Information

Before you fill out the form below, there are a few details you need to know.

We offer discounted tickets for groups of 12 or more. If a group size exceeds 30 or so, we’ll split it into at least two smaller groups to maximize the experience for everyone.

For admission to the exhibit hall only, adult group tickets are $14.00, senior/veteran/military group tickets are $12.00, and student group tickets are $10.00. If your group would also like to see a planetarium show, the cost will increase by just $3 for each ticket. Accompanying children younger than 5 can enter the exhibit hall for free, but it’s $6.00 each for a seat in the planetarium unless they are able to sit in a parent’s lap.

Timed entry tickets are available beginning at 10:00 a.m. each day with the last entry at 4:00 p.m. This means you will need to purchase tickets for the hour you plan to arrive. Once you arrive, your group can stay for as long as they would like. Please plan to arrive a few minutes early but know you may only gain access to the exhibit hall 10 minutes before your scheduled hour of arrival.

We currently offer three different planetarium shows:

Creation in the Solar System - 10:00, 12:00, 2:00, and 4:00. 
Exploring Deep Space - 10:35, 12:35, 2:35, and 4:35.
Secret Ocean - 11:10, 1:10, and 3:10.

Please note our planetarium has a limited capacity per show, seating is not reserved, and guests will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis.

To receive the benefit of discounted group pricing, you must register your group at least two weeks before the expected date of your visit. At the time you register, you will pay a $50 non-refundable deposit. Full payment is due no later than two weeks before your expected visit date. If you register exactly two weeks before the day of your visit, full payment will be due at the time of registration. Please keep in mind that if any group members miss a show or are unable to attend the trip for any reason, group tickets cannot be refunded or exchanged for a later date. This helps keep our programs on schedule and considers the needs of our staff, volunteers, and other guests.

Once your reservation has been finalized, we will not be able to change it or offer refunds. If you have additional people attending on the day of your trip, retail tickets are available at the ticket counter on a first-come, first-served basis.

In order to register your group, you will need to know:

  • What date you would like to come.
  • Which planetarium show you prefer for your group to see.
  • The final headcount of your group.
