The Columbia Public Schools (CPS) Planetarium, featuring a full-dome projection system, a sky full of brilliant stars and an ever-growing library of entertaining and educational shows, treats visitors to a unique view of the universe in which we live.
Rocket Camp Information: MU’s Department of Engineering and their American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) group brought lots of rockets to share with our visitors. They also told us about a Rocket Camp they are sponsoring this April. Click here to see a flyer for the Rocket Camp.
The Columbia Public School District has faithfully supported the planetarium since its opening in 1974 and a recent wave of community support has completely revitalized this 40-year-old facility. The result:
- A new full-dome projection system
- New shows
- New theater-style seating
- New carpeting
- and the first-ever regularly scheduled public programs
