Our state-of-the-art Planetarium & Dome Theater transports visitors beyond distant stars!
New technology also enables us to take visitors beyond space to explore the oceans' reefs, Earth’s geology, weather and more, all with surround sound and in new, comfortable seats!
Our new digital dome technology brings new perspectives to even the most familiar celestial bodies, constellations, and phenomena, from the Big Dipper to the northern lights.
But that's only part of it. Over time, programs on weather, geology, and evolution will pair striking visuals with the museum's hands-on exhibits. At our opening, new featured content will explore the oceans' reefs, what a human journey to Mars might be like, and more.
The Dome has seating for 57 visitors and offers space for up to 9 wheelchairs, easy-access seats, and hearing assistance devices.
A trip to our Dome will be out of this world!
The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History is pleased to welcome Jeffery “Buddy” Stark as the new Planetarium Manager. Stark fills the position vacated by the retirement of Matthew Linke who had held the position for 32 years.
Classes, home-schoolers, groups and families can enjoy science fun with our Virtual Field Trips from anywhere!
