Welcome to one of the largest, most technologically advanced planetariums in the United States. In 1997, the Planetarium opened its doors and over two million guests have visited. Arizona Science Center's Dorrance Planetarium features a NanoSeam design. The dome is the world's first of its kind at a science center or museum. 

Shows subject to change without notice.  


When should you visit?  Weekdays after 1 p.m. are typically quieter, as we proudly host field trips many weekday mornings.

Generously supported by Dorrance Family Foundation and Richard F. Caris Charitable Trust.
