Planetarium theater

The St. Charles Parish Library Planetarium is one of the only planetariums in the United States associated with a public library. Our planetarium helps to increase the public's understanding of science and our universe through interactive presentations on a 360 degree, digital surround-sound, 20-foot dome theater. The planetarium is located just 20 miles west of New Orleans on US 90.

Group Showings

The Planetarium can be booked for school field trips, girl and boy scout troops, senior citizens groups, and other community organizations. Visit our Group Showings page for more information.
