Holiday Planetarium Lighting

Thurs., Nov., 19 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Holiday fun kicks off with health and safety precautions in place!

In addition to extended operating hours, this evening will include showings of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer 4-D and the planetarium experience, Trans-Siberian Orchestra Laser Lights. Plus, the Cotton Mill Exchange will be open for extra shopping time, kids can enjoy an ornament activity and Columbia Craft Brewery will be on site to offer tasty sips from a selection of their craft beers. At the end of the evening, the museum will invite guests outside to see the ‘lighting’ of the planetarium dome as it is transformed into a giant snow globe with the help of our partners at Ambient Media: Event Lighting, Sound and Displays. The dome will light up every night after dark throughout the holiday season.

For health and safety the museum is managing gallery and theater capacity, requiring social distancing, and has increased cleaning frequency. Per Gov. McMaster’s executive order, guests aged 3 and above are required to wear a face covering while visiting state buildings.

Activities are included with museum general admission or membership. Planetarium and 4D shows require an additional charge. Due to limited capacities advance online ticket purchase is strongly encouraged.
