about LodeStar Astronomy Center:
Housed in the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, the facility boasts state-of-the-art digital imaging, which has vastly improved the beauty and clarity of planetarium presentations and shows. Even novice astronomers can pick out the constellations.
If the stars do not move you, try the Virtual Voyages Motion Simulator - theater seats move in six directions. Additional ticketing is required. Children under four are not permitted.
The museum is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and non-holiday Mondays in January and September.
Special events and programs are offered on a regular basis - check our event calendar for details.
