About Fleischmann Planetarium
Fleischmann Planetarium is part of the University of Nevada, Reno and Extended Studies. Open to the public, we offer daily digital planetarium shows in our dome theater, field trips and educational outreach in Earth and space science, and observatory viewing at the Redfield Campus of the University. Built in 1963 and originally called the “Fleischmann Atmospherium-Planetarium," we were the first planetarium in the world to project full-dome movies (of time-lapse clouds and weather phenomena).
