The Marie Drake Planetarium

Where the stars always shine in Juneau
1415 Glacier Avenue

Welcome to Juneau's planetarium
  • Location:  1415 Glacier Avenue in Marie Drake Building between Harborview and JDHS
  • Juneau's planetarium is a non-profit and has been run by volunteers for over 20 years. Our presentations and events reflect the interest and knowledge of our volunteers.  We offer free astronomy education for the public, school classes and community groups. We serve people of all ages and levels of astronomy knowledge. 


Last month we received a $10,000 matching grant from the Juneau Community Foundation's Blackwell Fund.  In a month, it was matched. 

Therefore, we will shortly order a new fixed Digitarium Lambda Projection SystemWe are very excited to be bringing this to Juneau. We look forward to start learning to use the amazing features it offers astronomy educators.

We hope to have a grand opening in January, 2020.

We are still fundraising however. We are applying for several grants and welcome donations of any size.

Learn more about different ways to give.  We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
