    Fiske Planetarium opened in 1975 with a generous donation from Wallace Franz Fiske (class of 1917) and remains the largest planetarium between Chicago and Los Angeles. We immerse students, visiting educators, and public audiences in engaging and interactive full dome films, live talks by leading researchers, live theatrical and musical performances, and late-night laser and liquid sky shows. Our overarching goal is to inspire passion in every individual to explore the universe.
