Welcome to Alaska's largest planetarium
Juneau's planetarium is part of the Juneau School District and has been run by volunteers for over 20 years. We offer astronomy education for the public, school classes and community groups. We use a 1967 Spitz analog projector.
Our shows reflect the interests and knowledge of our volunteers.

The Planetarium is located downtown on Glacier Highway in the Marie Drake Building (between Harborview and the Juneau Douglas High School). You will see the Planetarium logo on a sign above the double doors just before the playing field (astro turf).
If you are at the stop light at 10th Avenue and Egan Drive, coming into downtown Juneau, take a left at the light and go two blocks to Glacier Avenue. Take a left. Go two blocks to the 4 way stop sign at 12th and Glacier. Continue on Glacier Avenue. You will see the schools on the left side of the streets starting with the newly remodeled Harbor View School. Next to it is the Marie Drake Building. If you see the Augustus Brown Swimming Pool you have gone too far.
