Maumus Center Planetarium December showings

If you are looking for out-of-this-world holiday entertainment throughout the month of December, you might want to take in a show at the Maumus Center Planetarium. The Maumus Center is hosting several family-friendly shows including the “Nutcracker Suite Dancing Light Show.”

Children tickets, ages 4 – 12, are $5.00 and adult tickets are $10.00. Due to the nature of the shows, children under the age of four are not recommended to attend. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Planetarium doors close at the times listed, and attendees will not be admitted after the show begins. Please plan on arriving a few minutes early. Information regarding the purchasing of tickets can be found on the school district’s website at www.sbpsb.org/maumuscenter or by calling (504) 301-0239.
