Framingham State University Planetarium

Thanks to game-changing advancements in technology, today’s planetaria are no longer limited by single-purpose star projectors and associated astronomy-specific tools.

The Framingham State University Planetarium is a multi-disciplinary, HD digital, full dome educational theater that can reveal the inner workings of a cell, sub-atomic particle, or ecosystem just as easily as it can the immense structures that populate our universe.

Managed through the Christa McAuliffe Center, the facility serves University students, public school groups, out-of-school-time groups, and the local community with a diverse range of programming.

For more on how the FSU Planetarium may be able to benefit you as an FSU student or faculty member, K-12 teacher, youth organization leader, or interested member of the community, visit the McAuliffe Center’s website at, or call (508) 626-4050.
