Fleischmann Planetarium

Located in the northwestern portion of campus on a hill above Lawlor Events Center, the Fleischmann Planetarium opened in 1964 and was originally called the "Fleischmann Atmospherium-Planetarium." The Planetarium's unique shape, called a "hyperbolic parabaloid," was designed by famed Reno architect Ray Hellman and is now listed on the National Historic Register of Historic Buildings. The 13,000-square-foot facility includes large-screen star shows and feature films, as well as stargazing events and a gift shop, and attracts some 44,000 visitors and 15,000 schoolchildren annually.
