About Fleischmann Planetarium
The first planetarium in Nevada, Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center at the University of Nevada, Reno has brought the universe to our community since 1963. Also the first planetarium in the world to project full-dome movies on a 30-foot-diameter dome, the historic Fleischmann Planetarium has educated and entertained generations of school children and adults, inspiring imaginations and expanding horizons. The newly remodeled 60-seat Star Theater at Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center features the latest in digital planetarium technology and a state-of-the-art 70-millimeter large-format film projector. The Hall of the Solar System museum contains changing hands-on interactive displays, as well as permanent exhibits including large-scale rotating Earth and moon globes, a black hole demonstrator, dozens of meteorites and more. Visit the Art/Space Gallery on our lower level for rotating exhibits of science-themed and other related artwork from regional and national artists. Our Gift Shop offers a variety of sciencerelated toys, books and apparel — and your purchases are tax exempt and help support planetarium programs!
