Waiting Area


Waiting Room

The Waiting Area is located between our Gift Shop and planetarium Theater. The Waiting Area can accomodate as many visitors as the Theater — about 60-70 people. At one end of the Waiting Area, there are coat hooks for visitors to hang-up their jackets.

Our Waiting Area serves many purposes. There are a variety of displays to study and interact. We have a complete audio/video system to play DVDs or video tapes on an eight foot wide screen. There are large tables for groups to have sack lunches or snacks. There is no additional charge for groups to use the Waiting Area as part of their planetarium visit.
