When you explore the universe during a Planetarium show it can sometimes feel like you’re the only one in the room. Interested in turning that feeling into a reality? Well, now you can!

Our new private Planetarium shows will give you and your small group the chance to enjoy an exclusive experience at the Strasenburgh Planetarium. You can choose between our Black Holes: Revealed show, Pink Floyd Laser, and more! You can even choose what day and time work best for your family. 

Guests can choose from any of the Star Shows, Featured Presentations, and Laser Shows in the current menu of offerings for a private viewing.
