Sudekum Planetarium

Sudekum Planetarium

The first Sudekum Planetarium at Adventure Science Center opened in 1952, making it the second oldest in the southeastern United States. Since 1986, nineteen original shows have been produced and distributed, with five receiving awards for scriptwriting and audio-visual production.

The new state of the art Sudekum Planetarium was dedicated in 2008, and continues the tradition of creating quality programming. Sudekum shows feature inspiring and engaging scripts, strong educational concepts, and appeal to a broad range of audiences.

All these programs tell a good story with clear and simple visuals and a dramatic soundtrack designed to meet the needs and interests of visitors (and planetarium directors) around the world.
