Kirkpatrick Planetarium

A New Way to Experience the Stars

Beginning Sept. 29, 2018, visit the newly-upgraded Kirkpatrick Planetarium at Science Museum Oklahoma. From the solar system to the farthest reaches of the universe, visitors to the Kirkpatrick Planetarium can create their own adventure alongside our astronomy experts — no two live shows are exactly alike!

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Kirkpatrick Planetarium is now outfitted with state-of-the-art technology, giving you a planetarium experience unlike any you’ve seen before. Join us to explore the stars!

Shows are included with your general admission. Seating is available on a first-come,first-served basis. Please arrive early to secure your seat! Doors close promptly at showtime.

Show Content

Journey Through the Cosmos: Audience participation is a must for deep space travel! Come join us for our live presentation as we look up into the night sky, cruise around the solar system, and maybe even see a galaxy far, far away. Choose your own adventure as we journey through the cosmos — no two journeys through the cosmos are exactly the same!

 

Two Small Pieces of Glass: Learn how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the universe. It's all made possible by two small pieces of glass and the discoveries of Galileo, Huygens, Newton, Hubble, and many others.

 

NASA: Future of Human Space Exploration: Today NASA looks forward to the future of human space flight with its commercial and International partners; advancing research and technology on the International Space Station, opening low Earth orbits to U.S. industry, and pushing the frontiers of deep space even further. Join us for the next exciting chapter of NASA's journey!
