School Field Trips:
The planetarium is a university classroom and is closed to the public most of the time. You can visit during our free public events, but reservations are required for all other dates and times. Note that the Ott Planetarium is a volunteer organization, and we will reply to you as quickly as possible, but it may take a few days.
The planetarium is available for field trips on M-F. We can accommodate groups of up to 60 students for a cost of $60/hour for school visits. Please send an email to email@example.com to arrange a visit!Scout Troops:
A RESERVATION IS REQUIRED in order to ensure staffing. The cost is $5 per scout for either program (Boy Scout Merit Badge show or Cub Scout show). We are currently developing a Girl Scout program. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit!
Our next scheduled Boy Scout Astronomy Merit Badge program will be held on Thursday, April 19, 2018. Please email email@example.com if you would like to attend.For the Public:
