Upcoming events

Throughout the year, Space Place will host a series of events to engage and inform our patrons.

As we raise funds to build out a new planetarium, we will constantly be sharing news, updates and of course, events where you can support our efforts.

STEM/STEAM Events

Our goal is to build a unique destination for all things STEM and STEAM. Our proposed planetarium will house several exhibitions that drive innovation and curiosity.
