Public Shows


Please select the date and time for the show you would like to attend. If you encounter issues with the ticketing website, try changing your browser to Chrome or Safari. Show topics will be posted as they become available.

Our maximum capacity for public events is 28.  Please purchase your tickets well in advance, as our shows sell out quickly. Tickets are not sold at the door. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of your show, as there is no admittance once the show begins.

Note: If the show(s) you wish to attend are full, please email if you'd like to be put on a wait list. In your email, please include how many seats you need, your preferred contact method, and which date and time you would like to attend.

Please join us for our first fully live virtual planetarium show.  Using our Digistar software, we have created a full immersive tour through various locales in our solar system.  We'll peer into the inner workings of Earth, the sun, and the full complement of our neighboring planets.  These shows will be live-streamed directly to our guests via Zoom, and will be hosted and narrated live by Mark Reiser.  Audience questions will be welcome throughout the show, and we'll also have a Q&A session afterward.  Please join us for any of the 4 offerings of this special program!  Tickets will be required (but are free), and can be reserved here.

NOTE:  The University of Montana is limiting ways in which large groups can gather and possibly spread COVID-19 — like the planetarium, where there is close contact in an enclosed space.  For the near future, we will be creating Virtual/Online Planetarium shows for the public during the early parts of 2021.  Thank you for your patience as we persevere through the pandemic together.
