April Public Shows
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
Spring Stargazing highlights the stars and constellations of spring in this month's Evening Showings. You and your family will learn to find your way around the spring, night sky using the stars as your guide. You will also learn that there are more than just stars to be observed in our evening skies.
Saturdays at 10 a.m.
ExoPlanets: Worlds of Wonder returns to the planetarium this month. In this action-packed, claymation show, you and your family will join EXO1 and ProbeB. These two space probes are sent to explore planets around other stars. You will travel through space, experience exoplanets up close, zoom around a black hole and learn about our own solar system.
Saturdays at 2 p.m.
You and your family will learn about those mysterious points in space where not even light can escape, black holes. Black Holes takes the audience on a trip through space and time. You will see up close visualizations of black holes, hear Einstein's theory of relativity, and learn what would happen if you got too close to a black hole.
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.
