The Whittenberger 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 beyond. Programs are provided to school and home-school groups, scouts, the public, college classes, and more. We extended our outreach in the early 1990s with the purchase of a portable planetarium that is rented by schools and organizations throughout southwestern Idaho, central Oregon, and Nevada.
Please contact Kinga Britschgi if you have special needs in the planetarium as we are limited to two designated spaces for wheelchair seating and extra time is needed to enter the planetarium through the platform lift for handicapped access.
