The Radford University Planetarium is open during the fall and spring semesters when the university is in session. Our regular shows are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4pm and 7pm (both days), and 10:30am Saturday morning for kid-focused shows.
All shows are free and everyone is welcome to attend - no reservations required for the regular show times. We can seat up to 55 visitors for a show. If you have a large group (30 or more) that you're bringing for a particular show, please contact Planetarium Director Dr. Rhett Herman (Professor of Physics, firstname.lastname@example.org), to see if arranging a separate show would be better.
The Radford University Planetarium is a state-of-the-art Digistar 5 system located in our 10-meter-diameter dome. This updated facility opened in February of 2016 and has hosted over 5,000 visitors per year since. Please check the Planetarium web page for a listing of specific regular shows and times.
