The Planetarium is closed for the summer.

We will re-open in early September with a full slate of public shows.

A special thanks to all of our guests who made our Launch Party so successful!


For information about the planetarium please contact Dr. Rhett Herman,


The original Radford University Planetarium ended its 16-year run of public shows on Saturday, December 19, 2015 with the 10:30am show. It had been a great run with over 40,000 cumulative visitors since the first public show in October of 1999. We look forward to the next 16 years of service in our mission of science education.
