About the WIlliam Brish Planetarium:

Operated by the Washington County Public Schools System, the William Brish Planetarium serves K-12 students throughout Washington County August – June. The William Brish Planetarium now offers fully digital, full-dome presentations that immerse you in astronomy, earth science, biology and more.

Non-WCPS groups can schedule one of 25 different planetarium show. Topics range from animated programs that introduce the moon to young children to more advanced topics, such as black holes. Shows last approximately 25-minutes.

Evening public programs are also offered throughout the school year, usually on the first and fourth Tuesday of the month. Admission runs a little higher than a scheduled field trip group. Groups of 10+ who wish to attend an evening program must register in advance.
