Earth from Space 

Welcome to the WVU Planetarium

The WVU Planetarium is no longer having in-person shows due to COVID-19. We are doing virtual shows! Head over to our Showtimes tab to see our virtual show schedule. If you have any questions or concerns about us moving online please send them to

For more than 30 years, the planetarium at West Virginia University has given Morgantown and the surrounding communities a 
glimpse  into worlds beyond our own. Sitting atop White Hall, the planetarium has served thousands of people each year, including hundreds of WVU students.
