The WVU planetarium is a popular destination for field trips! We provide a FREE service for school groups, library groups, clubs, scout troops, and more! During the pandemic, we also learned to provide Virtual Field Trips, and we are happy to continue this option for those who desire, just let us know! 

Browse Our Shows page to choose an introduction and featured film for your visit, or we can work with you to make some suggestions to fit your group's particular needs and interests. Our most popular combination is the Night Sky Tonight introduction with a children's film (Larry Cat in SpaceAccidental AstronautsEarth, Moon & SunEarth's Wild RideOasis in SpaceThe Secrets of Gravity, or Two Small Pieces of Glass). 

To request a field trip, either in-person or virtual, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page, call us at 304-293-4961, or email
