The Texas A&M University-Commerce has a 40-foot dome and recently upgraded to a Digistar 5 all-digital projection system which fills the dome with sights and sounds beyond imagination. The planetarium's 87 reclined seats immerse the audience in a space environment, filling their vision and appearing to take them beyond the confines of Earth.
The planetarium is open to the public for shows on Fridays at 7 & 8pm. Call 903-468-8652 for a recording indicating shows for given dates.
Each show lasts about 50 minutes and begins with a live presentation of the current night sky where constellations, stars, and planets are shown.
Please reference the schedule page at the left for a description of the current shows.
Admission prices to the planetarium are:
$4.00 for those under 18 and TAMUC students with ID
$4.50 for faculty and staff of the university
$4.50 for senior citizens
$5.00 for adult general admission
A $1.00 discount will be provided on the second show for each person who purchases tickets for both shows on the same day.
Ticket reservations can be made in advance by calling 903-468-8650 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. Specific seats will not be reserved.
