Planetarium theater

The St. Charles Parish Library Planetarium is one of the only planetariums in the United States associated with a public library. Our planetarium helps to increase the public's understanding of science and our universe through interactive presentations on a 360 degree, digital surround-sound, 20-foot dome theater. The planetarium is located just 20 miles west of New Orleans on US 90.

Planetarium seating is limited and registration is required. Register through our event calendar or by calling the West Regional Library at 985-785-8471.
