You are warmly invited to visit us for a 20-40 minute planetarium show for your school group or community group, by appointment. We can tailor the show length to fit your needs. The show covers the basic ideas of astronomy from constellations to the Moon to planets to galaxies. If there is some special content that you would like, then feel free to ask. The planetarium has 54 seats and is wheelchair-friendly. We respectfully mention that no food or drink except water is allowed in the theater.

The planetarium is room CC2-220 on the Los Medanos campus. The planetarium lobby is at the level 2 entrance to the main college complex at Los Medanos. Starting from the front of the Child Study Center, walk along the pathway that goes to the right of the Child Study Center to reach the level 2 entrance and the planetarium lobby.
