Current Rates

Current program rates are based on how long we are conducting the actual programs (set up / take down time isn’t counted).  Does not include mileage and lodging (if necessary).


Similar planetarium programs across the nation charge $800-$1300 per day and don’t include exhibits!  We keep our prices as low as possible so we can bring the experience to as many Arkansas students as possible.

Math / Science Night Add-On

Share the excitement of your full day program with family and friends by adding a math / science night.

Additional Fees

Mileage: $.50/mile
The mileage rate is charged from Greenbrier, AR to your location and back again.  

Lodging: $150 / night
A lodging fee is added to cover the cost of a hotel if we need to spend the night. This occurs if the program start time, plus travel and setup time would require us to be up unreasonably early or if we are booked for multiple days and it is not practical to drive back home the night between.

The distance we can travel outside Arkansas (and we do on a regular basis) will depend in large part on when mileage fees make the trip cost prohibitive.  For example, we have done programs in eastern Oklahoma, southern Missouri and in eastern Texas around DFW.
