School Groups Pre-K - 5th Grades

We are currently offering several different shows for grades Pre-K through 5th. Details about each of the shows are given below. With these shows the students will also have the opportunity to ask questions and view the current night sky where constellations, stars, and planets will be shown. The total show will last about an hour. This is a field trip that should not be missed.

The planetarium has a seating capacity of 87. If the visiting group exceeds this number, we can easily schedule multiple sessions to accommodate larger groups. 

The price for one show is $4 per person and groups interested in seeing two shows on the same day will receive a $1.00 discount on the second show.

Ticket prices are the same for each member of your group; including students, teachers, parents, bus drivers etc. A single check for the whole group is preferred and can be made payable to TAMUC Planetarium.

Shows can be scheduled from 8 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday.  Please allow one hour per show when scheduling your visit to the planetarium.
