The Marie Drake Planetarium

Where the stars always shine in Juneau, AK

The Marie Drake Planetarium provides free astronomy education to people of all ages and levels of astronomy knowledge.  We educate the public, school classes and community groups. We are a non profit and have been run by volunteers for over 30 years.  Our volunteers are passionate about sharing their love of astronomy.
The planetarium and JEDC are offering an astronomy camp in July for students entering 7th to 9th grade.
