Kirkpatrick Planetarium

A New Way to Experience the Stars

Visit the newly-upgraded Kirkpatrick Planetarium at Science Museum Oklahoma! From the solar system to the farthest reaches of the universe, visitors to the Kirkpatrick Planetarium can create their own adventure alongside our astronomy experts — no two live shows are exactly alike.

Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Kirkpatrick Planetarium is now outfitted with state-of-the-art technology, giving you a planetarium experience unlike any you’ve seen before. Join us to explore the stars!

Shows are included with your general admission. Seating is available on a first-come,first-served basis. Please arrive early to secure your seat! Doors close promptly at showtime.

Show Content

Journey Through the Cosmos: Audience participation is a must for deep space travel! Come join us for our live presentation as we look up into the night sky, cruise around the solar system, and maybe even see a galaxy far, far away. Choose your own adventure as we journey through the cosmos — no two trips are exactly the same!

Cosmic Adventure: Take a rollercoaster ride from the moon, through our solar system, and all the way outside our galaxy! This high-speed adventure will immerse you in some of the most amazing sites our universe has to offer.

Tales of a Time Traveler: Time travel like you’ve never imagined! Explore ancient civilizations, witness the birth of the universe, and discover that time is not so easily defined. Narrated by David Tennant.

Two Small Pieces of Glass: Learn how the telescope has helped us understand our place in space and how telescopes continue to expand our understanding of the universe. It's all made possible by two small pieces of glass and the discoveries of Galileo, Huygens, Newton, Hubble, and many others.
