During your visit you’ll watch a Planetarium Star Theatre show, experience a science demonstration in our GroundStation Canada theatre and visit our Observatory, with a tour of our ½ metre Cassegrain telescope. Then join us outside to view the night skies through our portable telescopes. These telescopes give us the freedom to move around and find the best position for viewing.

Our programming is recommended for families with children ages 8+. Children must be accompanied by adults. One ticket must be purchased for each member of your group. Tickets for children ages 3 and under, who do not need their own seat in our theatres, are available at no cost.

Evening programming is only available on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Select your desired time slot and purchase a ticket for each member of your party. We recommend booking online as there are a limited number of tickets available at the door each day, and our evening programming often sells out in advance.

Tickets are $18 (plus taxes and fees) per person in your group. We are not accepting Access 2 cards any longer. Gift cards can be redeemed in-person only. We are unable to accept them for online tickets sales.

PLEASE NOTE: Eventbrite online ticket sales end at 6:00pm on Friday evening programming. If you would like to book a same day visit after online ticket sales have closed additional tickets may be available at the front desk.


Masking is optional at our facility, and do not require proof of vaccination for entry. We continue to recommend masks and will have masks available to guests who wish to wear one but do not have their own masks.
