View stars at Abrams Planetarium.

Explore the Universe at the Abrams Planetarium in Michigan State University

The Abrams Planetarium, located in the heart of Michigan State University’s campus, is an out-of-this-world experience dedicated to space education. Visitors can learn about astronomy, from ancient discoveries to modern innovations and telescopes.

Dr. Shannon Schmoll, the director of the planetarium, says that the planetarium welcomes visitors with a big earth exhibit that spins at the push of a button. Origami cranes adorn the ceiling which were made by the Joey’s Wings Foundation, focused on fighting childhood cancer. The planetarium asks visitors to contribute to its art project with origami stars.

Schmoll suggests that visitors to the planetarium should stop by the gift counter to check in for public shows which include spectacular exhibits of meteorites and the state of Michigan’s first telescope. The centerpiece of the planetarium is its dome theater, where visitors can enjoy immersive shows showcasing space and beyond.

The planetarium is open to the public, Monday through Friday for group showings and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings for individual public shows. The planetarium has an excellent lecture series throughout the academic year geared towards people interested in science, cosmology, and astronomy. Additionally, children can participate in the Young Astronomers Club, which meets the first Saturday of each month.
