The West Virginia University Planetarium is located on the PL Floor of White Hall, 135 Willey Street. Admission is free, but reservations are required and can be made at (304)293-4961 or at jghopkins@mail.wvu.edu.

Reservations cannot be accepted after 3:30 P.M. on the days of the shows. This is usually on a Friday.

Additionally, the WVU Observatory, equipted with a “14 Celestron telescope, will be open for public viewing on the same evenings as the planetarium shows but require no reservations. The facility is also located on floor PL of White Hall. Reservations are not required, however, the sky must be dark and clear.


There are two conditions under which we will not have advertised shows.

1. If the local public schools are canceled (not just a two hour delay) due to bad weather on Friday, regardless of how the weather might appear in the evening, there will be no shows.

2. If, during the day on Friday, we have significant snow and/or bad ice conditions on the road, there will be no shows.

We rely on your sound judgement.
