The following guidelines will help you plan for your visit to the planetarium.

  • How large of a group are you bringing?

    We do have a limit on the number of people allowed in the planetarium. If your group is too large, we may request you break into two or more smaller groups. Are there any specific time(s) you would like the show(s) to be at?

    Note: The Planetarium seats approximately 35-40 visitors.

    We currently have 5 trained operators with varying schedules. We would like to be able to accommodate your group as best we can. Please be advised that if you schedule other events on campus, you will need to take into account the travel time between locations. Clemson University is a large campus and parking can be a problem at times.

  • Do you have any special needs?

    Our planetarium does have a ramp for wheelchair access, but we do not have much room for more than two wheelchairs in the upper seating area. There is space beside the control panel for someone to sit and still be able to see the show. If you will have someone with a wheelchair, we ask that you please inform us at the time you are scheduling the show.

  • What age group are you bringing?

    Our shows can be tailored to any age group, but it is easier for us to plan ahead what will be shown if we know the age group.

  • Do you have any special topics that you would like us to mention?

    If you are on a tight schedule, the shortest show we will do is 25 minutes. You can request shows for up to 1.5 hours if you have specific topics you would like addressed.
