Visit the Planetarium

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.

This 2015-2016 school year, since there is so much construction on campus, our ability to accommodate field trips is limited. Still, we'd love to see you! We can accommodate groups of up to 60 students during the afternoon during the week. The cost is $60/hour for school visits. Please send an email to spalen@weber.edu to arrange a visit!

Scout Troops:

During February and March of 2016, we have Cub Scout and Boy Scout Programs available on Wednesday nights. On February 3 and March 2, there will be a Boy Scout Merit Badge program from 6-8 pm. On February 17th and March 16th, there will be a Cub Scout program, from 6-7 pm. A RESERVATION IS REQUIRED in order to ensure staffing. The cost is $5 per scout for either program. Please send an email to spalen@weber.edu to arrange a visit!

For the Public:

The planetarium is generally closed to the public, but sometimes we are open in connection with another event on campus, such as the Physics Open House, or Science Saturday.
