About The Planetarium:
A Planetarium theater is a special room with a dome shaped ceiling and a projector in the center which can recreate the day or night sky by projecting images of the stars, planets, the sun, and the moon. Without leaving your seats, you will be transported beyond the city smoke and lights where the wonders of the heavens can best be seen.
The Charles Horwitz Planetarium opened in May 2005. The state-of-the-art, 90-seat, Digistar-6 planetarium is owned and operated by the School District of Waukesha. With the new, high-definition laser projection system, guests can fly through the rings of Saturn, land spacecraft on Mars and travel at light speed to stars and distant galaxies… all without leaving their seats!
The entrance to the planetarium, lobby area, and the theater are completely wheelchair accessible.
