Please note that the planetarium will be closed until COVID-19 restrictions on "Movie-Theaters" have been lifted presumably during phase three of Governor Cooper's NC reopening plan.


As the second largest planetarium in North Carolina, the Schiele Museum’s James H. Lynn Planetarium and Science Theater is home to an immersive experience unlike anything else in the area. Featuring a fully digital projection system that surrounds the audience with a domed, 360-degree screen, visitors become immersed in every show as we surround you with the wonders of the universe – on earth and beyond!


$5 per person + general museum admission

(children ages 3 and younger admitted free)

PLEASE NOTE: All programs are subject to change without notice. While we make every effort to present the shows as listed on our website and in our events calendar, we may need to substitute shows. If you're planning to see a certain show, we recommend that you call our Admissions Desk at 704.866.6900 to confirm presentation status. 

Shows begin promptly at their scheduled time. Due to the planetarium’s dark environment, late admission or re-admission once a program begins is not permitted; please arrive early to allow time for seating.
