PUBLIC Planetarium Shows
Admission to our public planetarium Shows is free, and spots are filled up on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are a community or school group looking to schedule a show, or have a group of 10+ people and would like to ensure seats, feel free to contact us directly at email@example.com. Please also email us with any questions or concerns about the new policy.
Doors open 15 minutes prior to the scheduled showing. Once the doors are closed we do not open them until the end of the showing, or unless there is an emergency. We appreciate your cooperation.

The West Virginia University Planetarium is located on the PL Floor of White Hall, 135 Willey Street. Please note that we cannot answer the telephone while in the planetarium, so call or email in advance to assure there's time to get your message returned!
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. Please note that the sky must be dark and clear, as we cannot see through clouds.
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.
