JENKS PLANETARIUM



Explore the night sky with our engaging, awe-inspiring shows at the Jenks Planetarium!  The 50-foot high definition SciDome provides the ultimate screen for seeing planets up close, flying to distant stars and galaxies, and even rediscovering our own earth in ways never thought possible. From a complex black hole to the simplicity of a constellation, audiences will walk away with a new understanding of our cosmos. Shows will interest everyone from the young to the young at heart. All shows last approximately 50 minutes.
