All shows cancelled until further notice (as preventative measure). We will send an email and post here when we are able to have public events again.
Welcome to Juneau's planetarium
Juneau's planetarium is a unique community resource. It is part of the Juneau School District but has been run by volunteers for 20 years.
The Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium non profit was formed in 2011. We promote astronomy education and are the primary organization promoting, using,
and upgrading the Marie Drake Planetarium. We have a five member board.
We partner with the Juneau School District and other community organizations.
We offer diverse presentations and events to people of all ages and levels of astronomy knowledge. We provide free astronomy education
for the public, school classes and community groups.
