Planetarium

Schuele Planetarium brings the fascinating realm of astronomy to people of all ages, from preschoolers through adults.

Originally built in 1968, the planetarium was transformed in 2014 with the introduction of the Fleming Family Projection System. This combination of an opti-mechanical star projector and digital projector provides visitors with an immersive learning experience through high-resolution, 360 degree images and a realistic, breathtaking display of over 3,000 stars. The full dome planetarium theater offers comfortable seating for 54 and is wheelchair accessible. The Center is uniquely positioned on Huntington Reservation’s park setting to provide hands-on learning experiences for finding constellations and identifying planets in the night sky.
