Mallory Kountze Planetarium

The Planetarium is offering shows again!

So, you want to try something new and different or maybe you just want to be nostalgic. Travel through our solar system and galaxy, off to other galaxies far beyond. Experience your own Private Shows! Right now we are taking private show requests for any reason you might have. Public Shows are back with limited offerings too. The UNO Planetarium plans to remain open on a limited basis during the Durham Science Center remodel as construction will allow.

The Mallory Kountze Planetarium

The Mallory Kountze Planetarium located in the heart of the Durham Science Center, on the UNO campus, is an exciting place to go for star shows, lectures, and possible rooftop observing! The Planetarium has Space Telescope Science Institute's "ViewSpace" display next to its entry. ViewSpace is updated daily from STScI with the latest images and content from Hubble Source. As you wait for a planetarium show or just walking through the Durham Science Center, learn a little about what's happening in space.
