One of the most advanced spaces like it in the U.S., the cutting-edge 250-seat Frost Planetarium takes you on visual joyrides that both thrill and educate. Though it might seem like you’re really hurtling through space or weaving through a coral reef or DNA strand, that ultra-real immersive experience is the result of a 16-million-color 8K visual system using six 3D-capable projectors and surround sound. The dome is tilted forward at 23.5 degrees, allowing its 67-foot span to fill your field of vision as if you’re flying—imagery comes at you from above, below and the peripheral edges, creating a nearly 360-degree view of whatever world you’re in. In addition to outstanding shows, our staff-led programming allows school groups to travel to the planet or galaxy of their choice. Frost Planetarium also displays spellbinding laser light events, innovative live programming and is available for private presentations.
Informed by leading edge science, the Frost Planetarium shows carry you to the far reaches of known existence, and spark the wonderment at the core of scientific exploration.
As one of the most unique and high-tech spaces in Florida, the Frost Planetarium is home to innovative science programming and more.
On the first Friday of every month, Frost Science fuses music—from Lady Gaga to Pink Floyd—with mesmerizing laser light visuals all under the 67-foot dome of the Frost Planetarium.
