About the Planetarium

Tarleton Science Planetarium is an integral part of our new Science Building which opened in April 2001. Featuring a Digistar II digital starfield projector, 18 photographic slide projectors, two video projectors and surround sound under a 40' (12.192m) dome our 56-seat theatre is truly a fitting environment in which to explore the wonders of the universe.

All Tarleton Science Planetarium shows are available by appointment for all school and educational groups. The maximum seating capacity of our theatre is 56. To make an appointment, call 254-968-0523. Or you may email us at The cost is $2.00 per person, with a group minimum of $40.00. If you wish to make arrangements for other educational programs in addition to the planetarium during your visit, please call at least 30 days in advance.
