Sam B. Peña Planetarium


Astronomy is the oldest of the sciences and the one which has held the strongest grip on our imagination over the centuries. The modern era of space telescopes and sophisticated space probes has brought with it a great expansion of our cosmic horizons and many surprising changes in our understanding of the universe.

The planetarium provides students with the opportunity to explore the wonders of the universe in an exciting and stimulating manner. Visitors will take imaginary, but realistic, trips through our solar system, as well as explore a variety of other astronomy-related topics.

The Peña Planetarium features a 30-foot Spitz dome screen and a new full-dome, high definition, digital projection system.

The Peña Planetarium has a seating capacity of 70.
