The Wittenberger Planetarium has been serving primarily as a public outreach facility since 1970. It is the annual destination of thousands of people throughout the Treasure Valley and for people as far away as central Oregon and central Idaho. Programs are provided to school and home-school groups, scouts, the public, and to college classes from though out the Treasure Valley. We extended our outreach in the early 1990s with the purchase of a portable planetarium that is rented by schools and organizations throughout southwestern, west-central Idaho, central Oregon, and Nevada.
Please let Kinga (208-459-5211) know if you have special needs in the planetarium as we are limited two designated spaces for wheelchair seating and extra time is needed to enter the planetarium through the platform lift for handicapped access.
