SKYDOME PLANETARIUM

A Portable Planetarium and Space Science Museum

The Science Field Trip That Comes To You!

—   Serving Arkansas and the southern United States  —

The Arkansas SkyDome Portable Planetarium and Space Science Museum travels across Arkansas and the southern United States to excite students and the public about space and science. With one of the largest, most advanced digital portable planetarium systems in the region, this unique immersive experience can take students across the universe.

Our “Space Science Museum” includes astronaut autographs dating back to Project Mercury, NASA memorabilia, aircraft and rocket models, soil samples from around the world, minerals, meteorites, fossils, and more. Your program can also include a large GPS telescope that gives students the opportunity to view objects in the real sky! 

To our knowledge we are the only ones to offer a portable planetarium and science museum in the same program.

Latest News:

We’ve recently invested in a Bose sound system so the audio quality matches  the visual experience!

School Planetarium Programs

School Day Science Programs
Our planetarium and science exhibits set up in your large indoor space bringing a star filled experience to your students. In addition to professionally produced full dome movies, the presentations include live,  grade appropriate tours of the current night sky that encourages students to go outside to explore the heavens themselves. Hands on exhibits encourage students to explore various science topics and STEM careers.

School Math & Science Nights
If you’re holding a Math / Science night, our planetarium and telescope can be a center piece of the evening’s activities.  We’ve participated in many science night events so we can also be a resource on setting up a successful evening. 

Looking for an out-of-this-world activity?

Whether you’re a library in search of a summer program, a scout group eager to help your scouts earn a space-related badge, a business seeking an amazing corporate function experience, a parent with a future space explorer celebrating a birthday, or any civic group eager to create an unforgettable evening for kids of all ages, we can help!

Note: Except for Corporate Functions, due to travel costs these programs are generally only going to be available in and around Arkansas.

VBS / Church Youth Groups

“The heavens declare the glory of God.” – Psalms 19:1

Studies tell us one of the reasons youth leave church is because of conflicts between faith and science. Using apologetics found in the Scriptures and the visual power of the planetarium we show students how nature and the Bible complement each other.

Is it Christmas time?  Be sure to ask about our faith affirming program that seeks to answer the question “What was the Star of Bethlehem? ”

One of the largest and most advanced digital portable planetarium systems in the region.
