Hours of Operation

The Whittenberger Planetarium operates "by appointment only". We do not have regular opening hours with set shows like a movie theatre for instance. Before visiting you need to contact us to set up a program for you (we ask two weeks' notice before the planned visit). Click here for more information how to set up your visit. The only pre-set programs are the Public Shows. Public Programs are held one night per month beginning in September (except January) at 7:00 p.m.  Click here to check our Public Show schedule.
