Laser Shows and Special Programs

Buhl Planetarium is open!

Even though we had to open with temporary seating, the team couldn’t wait to show you the new technology that has re-established the Planetarium as one of the most advanced in the nation!

As a sign of the times, the new, more accessible, and comfortable, seats are delayed due to global supply issues. Capacity is limited and seating is first-come, first-served. Be sure that your entire party is in the line so they can be counted before we open the doors. Thank you for your support.

Planetarium showtimes are posted on the calendar.



We often are open late on Friday and Saturday evenings for laser shows and special programs. Check the calendar for this week’s programs.

Special Closing Dates

Because of heavy traffic and traffic restrictions on the North Side, Carnegie Science Center is typically closed on days when there are Steelers home games or other major events at Heinz Field.
