Located at the Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences, the Cummins Planetarium features the latest full-dome video and laser light shows to entertain, educate and inspire audiences of up to 50 people. Prepare to take flight, expand your mind, and rock out under the planetarium dome. Check out our program offerings through August 2020 and find something for all interests. And remember, regularly-scheduled public planetarium shows are included with your museum admission.
All planetarium shows are canceled until further notice.
Family-friendly stargazing parties and safely-filtered solar viewing activities are hosted each month by staff from the Cummins Planetarium at locations around Rocky Mount. Partners and co-hosts include members of the Tar River Astronomy Club, the Braswell Memorial Library, Rocky Mount Farmers Market and others.
