Los Alamos Nature Center Planetarium

The Los Alamos Nature Center has re-opened to the public. Starting in July, we will hold a mix of in-person planetarium shows and virtual astronomy talks on Friday evenings at 7 PM. Plus, join us on Wednesdays at 3 PM for a planetarium open house with volunteer Galen Gisler. View PEEC’s other upcoming events here.

The Los Alamos Nature Center Planetarium serves as an astronomy, space-science, and nature education resource for Northern New Mexico. Our planetarium comfortably seats 50 individuals. A digital projection surrounds you on the domed theater thirty feet in diameter.
