The planetarium will be closed from January 26 - February 6, 2015 for upgrades.  We're sorry for any inconvenience, but we're excited about our brand-new projectors!

The Planetarium at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science is an amazing theater that blends art, science, and fun!  The largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in New Mexico, our 55' Sky-Skan Definiti, full-dome theater features educational and entertaining multimedia presentations on astronomy and space science.  Whether it's learning about the constellations in our night sky tonight or watching mind-bending fractal zooms, the Planetarium will be an experience that you and your family will not soon forget!

Earth's Wild Ride
