Audio/Video System


Waiting Area projector

Our Waiting Room has a complete audio/video system. DVDs, VHS tapes, laser disc, NASA TV, and computer presentations can all be projected on our eight foot wide screen. Our sound system features Dolby surround sound.

If your group is has too many members to fit into our planetarium Theater, consider using our Waiting Area. Large groups can be divided with half of the group going to the planetarium Theater and half going to the Waiting Area. While the group in the Theater sees a planetarium program, the group in the Waiting Area can view a video presentation. The two groups can then swap rooms. Groups may use our audio/video system as part of their planetarium visit at no additional charge.
