Please note

• The planetarium is a dark environment with overhead motion & occasional loud sounds during a show. It is not recommended for guests who are sensitive to such conditions.

• No food or drinks in the planetarium.

Safety

For your safety, if you leave the theater at show time or after, you will not be allowed to return. Your eyes will not adjust quickly enough to the change in lighting between the lobby and theater if you try to return during a show or after a show has already begun. Because of these conditions, and due to the show being presented overhead, you can easily become disoriented, lose your balance, and fall to the ground seriously injuring yourself.
