The new Museum’s Planetarium & Dome Theater will continue the Museum’s tradition of entertaining and educating generations of planetarium visitors. Once inside the theater, audiences will be dazzled by images displayed by the state-of-the-art, full-dome projection system, including:
- Powerful, customizable projection technology that will bring a wide range of subjects and new discoveries alive for U-M students, school groups, and the public
- Seating for 65 people for lectures, film series, or small concerts
Donations will support the purchase of pre-recorded programs on topics ranging from archaeology to zoology, as well as visualizations to enhance shows developed in-house.
