The Talbert and Leota Abrams Planetarium, located on the beautiful Michigan State University campus, serves as an astronomy and space science education resource center for central Michigan. The planetarium is an outreach unit of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and as such, we support astronomy teaching on campus as well as offer a variety of planetarium shows to the public–preschool through senior citizens.

The Planetarium consists of three primary sections: the Exhibit Hall, the Blacklight Gallery, and  the Sky Theater. Each part of the building has been renovated since its original construction, with each change representing an improvement in technology and scientific knowledge.
