Admission to our Public Planetarium Shows is free, but reservations are required and can be made by filling out the form below if the showing still has seats available. If you are a community or school group looking to schedule a show, feel free to use the form below or directly contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The West Virginia University Planetarium is located on the PL Floor of White Hall, 135 Willey Street. 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, equipped with a 14 inch Celestron telescope, will be open for public viewing on the same evenings as the planetarium shows but require no reservations. Please note that the sky must be dark and clear, as we cannot see through clouds.
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.
