The planetarium will be closed on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 for the Mardi Gras holiday.
February Public Shows
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
We Are Aliens explains the science of astrobiology. You and your family will explore planets around other stars, learn about “habitable zones” and look for alien life in our own solar system.
Saturdays at 10 a.m.
One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure introduces your young children to the wonders of stargazing with Big Bird and Elmo as their guide. They will join Elmo and his friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu, on an imaginary trip to the Moon and learn how it differs from our home, the Earth.
Saturdays at 2 p.m.
We Are Astronomers explains the science of astronomy and the work of astronomers. You and your family will witness the beauty of the universe around us and learn about the latest space telescope that will bring those sights down to earth.
Doors open 15 minutes before the scheduled showtime. Due to the unusual lighting conditions in the planetarium, no one is allowed to enter once the show has started. Please come early.
Our planetarium has forty-two, theater-style seats for a comfortable viewing experience. Its digital, star projector creates an immersive portal on our universe. With it, we will show you, your family or your students more than just the stars. We will travel to the planets, back in time and beneath the ocean's surface.
Located just 20 miles west of New Orleans, Louisiana on US 90, the Planetarium is attached to the West Regional branch of the
St. Charles Parish Library at 105 Lakewood Dr. in Luling.
We proudly offer FREE public shows every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
