In general, we do not recommend a group see more than 3 programs in one day. Remember that each program is booked to 1 hour blocks starting at the bottom of the hour - be sure to save time for lunch, touring our free exhibits, or visiting the Gift Shop.


For example, if you prefer show 1 over show 2 for the planetarium, but want one of the two, you would like us to book in an hour for lunch, you are making one request for more than one visit date, etc.
