The Planetarium has been offering a new adult astronomy program on the first Monday of every month at 2:00 pm. The current Night Sky show will be presented, and then we will then engage in a 30 to 45 minute open lecture/discussion, driven by the interests and questions concerning astronomy and cosmology by the audience. We hope this new program and format will aid Museum patrons in their understanding of our universe. The Hoover-Price Planetarium will continue to present “The Universe at Large” at 1:00 on Saturdays and 2:00 on Sundays. Weekday public shows- lasting 30 minutes- at 1:00 have begun, and will continue through Labor Day. The Planetarium seats 65, and admission is included with admission to the Museum. Children must be 5 years or older to attend, and the First Monday program is for adults. The Hoover-Price Planetarium is located inside the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum, 800 McKinley Monument Drive, N.W., in Canton, Ohio For more information visit the Planetarium’s blog on the Museum’s website, or call the Museum at 330-455-7043.
