Planetarium

The Texas A&M University-Commerce Planetarium has a 40-foot dome and recently upgraded to a Digistar 5 all-digital projection system which fills the dome with sights and sounds beyond imagination. The planetarium's 87 reclined seats immerse the audience in a space environment, filling their vision and appearing to take them beyond the confines of Earth.

The planetarium is open to the public for shows on Fridays
at 7 & 8 pm. Call 903-468-8652 for a recording indicating shows for given dates.

Each show lasts about 50 minutes and begins with a live presentation of the current night sky where constellations, stars, and planets are shown.

  • $4.00 for those under 18 and TAMUC students with ID

It was interesting. But it was unconvincingly cut short at places, and few things were arbitrarily shown.
