Hayden Planetarium Space Theater

Housed in the top half of the Hayden Sphere, the 429-seat Space Theater is one of the world’s largest virtual reality simulators, displaying an astonishingly realistic view of planets, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies based on a scientifically accurate 3D map of the observable universe maintained by Museum scientists and visualization experts. Space Shows screen from 10:30 to 4:30, every hour on the half hour, except Wednesdays, when the first screening begins at 11 am. The theater is wheelchair accessible, and captioning devices are available.
