The Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center is a historic landmark, deeply ingrained in the fabric of the Reno community. Opened in 1963, the Planetarium was designed by Raymond Hellmann, a local architect who designed more than $100 million in construction upon moving to Reno in 1951.
Over the course of the past 59 years, the Planetarium has hosted thousands of field trips for students eager to learn about atmospheric science, and continues to immerse students in interactive field trip experiences seven days a week. In addition, the center is open to the local community, and provides people of all ages with access to public screenings in the Full-Dome Theater and a plethora of exhibits around the facility. The Science Store also serves as a one-stop-shop for all sorts of intergalactic gadgets and gifts, perfect for space and science lovers alike.
