We offer a diverse range of fulldome films, star talks, live talks, laser and liquid sky shows, concerts, and special live events, as well as host large crowds during astronomical and NASA-related events.
Our planetarium's 65-foot diameter dome (the largest between Chicago and Los Angeles) completed a major systems upgrade in 2013 with an 8K Sky-Skan projection system that allows us to show the most cutting-edge content in a truly immersive environment that fully surrounds audiences with a huge screen, dazzling visuals, and fantastic sound. The new MegaStar projector shows 10 million stars and the Milky Way, creating one of the most beautiful indoor skies ever. Our planetarium can seat 206 guests.
Fiske opened in 1975 with a generous donation from Wallace Franz Fiske, class of 1917.
