More Information

Ahoy mateys! Join us on a voyage across the solar system, where you landlubbers will learn the ways in which pirates used the planets and stars to navigate the Seven Seas. Avast, ye scallywags, to learn which planet was the most helpful to pirates, which one would trick them, and which one is full of craters named after sailors. We’ll sail past Neptune, the god of the sea, and his mermaid moons, and learn fun facts about Billy Bowlegs and his crew. We’ll end our voyage by sailing through the constellations and sharing stories of the mythical creatures and monsters that lie just under the waters, waiting for you scurvy dogs to find them. Savvy? Pirate costumes encouraged! Recommended for ages 5+
Our Planetarium is an inflatable dome. Guests sit on cushions on the floor of the planetarium to view the show. Space is limited; purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended for this reason. On Planetarium Night, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled showing. In case of no-shows/late shows: reserved spots will be released at show time to make space for the next party.

Shows begin at 6 and 7 pm and last approximately 45 minutes.

Don’t miss the preshow, included with your reservation! Our planetarium preshow begins at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. During, your family can discover and learn about various space explorations, space facts, and more from our local experts at the Northwest Florida Astronomy Association.

Seating is limited and very popular. We encourage purchasing your tickets in advance, as this is a first come, first served event. Please call 850-664-1261, stop by the Science Center, or use our online ticketing option to purchase your tickets.
