For as long as history has been recorded, man has had an insatiable hunger for knowledge regarding the universe. To understand why man is so interested in this unknown expanse of space around our little world, we must take a journey. Please, sit back, relax and free yourself from the bonds of our planet as we take off for the stars! [bzzzzt!]

The Planetarium is an area inside the Museum of Technology.




The Museum is located in the Mall. The easiest way to get there is to take Anacostia Crossing station to Museum station and take the Museum of Technology exit.


The planetarium consists of the main hall with the projector, controls and seating for audience. On the side is a maintenance room which consists of tools and other supplies.
