Grand Tour of the Solar System

This live tour takes you on an exploratory journey through space from the comfort of your seat.

Recommended 8+

Take a trip through our Solar System, stopping off to explore the atmosphere of different planets – from the poisonous gases and unbearable 900˚F heat of Venus to the dark, distant cool of Pluto! Stopping at each of the planets in our Solar System, the presentation also provides a close-up on Mars, which is scientists’ pick for the next inhabitable planet. The Red Planet is half the size of Earth, devoid of breathable air and currently in the midst of an ice age, so it might not be time to move in just yet! This presentation is the perfect reminder of how much more is out there.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for shows. Late entry into the planetarium is not possible once the show has started.
