THE HISTORY OF OUR PLANETARIUM
In 1973, the planetarium was opened to SCSU students and the community. The SCSU Planetarium has proven to be a unique educational facility that strives to educate university students in the classroom setting. When it is not being used as a classroom it is a form of outreach to the people of central Minnesota regarding the natural world.
