Group Visits

                                                                                                        

Due to a change in personnel, the planetarium will no longer be taking show requests for dates past December 15th. All requests past that date will be sorted into a waiting list. When programs resume, requests will be addressed in the order they were placed.

For over 50 years, the planetarium at Hartnell College has hosted group visits, mainly field trips from local schools. Since 2014, the planetarium has hosted over 10,000 visitors from local schools. We proudly serve our local community, seeking to blend education and entertainment to provide an enriching experience for our visitors.
