Planetarium: Science, Walk
For years, it’s been the place where thousands of young people and adults come to learn about the universe and worlds beyond our reach. The Erie Planetarium served as a resource for the Erie community for more than fifty years, and it continues today as the Yahn Planetarium, now a part of Penn State Behrend. The planetarium is located in the School of Science complex on the Behrend campus. The new-and-improved planetarium officially opened to the public on Thursday, November 6, 2014. Public shows are offered Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. throughout the winter, spring, and fall seasons. An additional show is held Thursdays at 2:30 p.m. during the summer season.
