Digital and live full-dome planetarium shows

An immersive theater experience that brings the cosmos to you!

When the room is darkened, the dome is transformed into a realistic simulation of the starry sky. The images that are created completely envelop viewers’ senses for an immersive theater experience.

Laser Light Shows
The Discovery Museum is thrilled to offer laser light shows in the Henry B. duPont III Planetarium. Thanks to a generous gift of laser technology from Donnie Gamsjager and DNR Laboratories, the planetarium presents the science and art of multicolor laser projection and effects timed to the surround-sound music of some of your favorite artists.

Laser shows will be available on select weekends and at special events. Please call for details.
