The Cummins Planetarium, at Rocky Mount’s Imperial Centre for the Arts & Sciences, first opened in the Spring of 2006, making it the first planetarium in North Carolina to feature a full-dome digital video projection system. The planetarium features a thirty-foot dome, tilted forward slightly to maximize viewing for audiences of up to 50 people. Admission to all shows is on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission to the Children’s Museum & Science Center includes admission to all public shows that day. Shows begin promptly and, for the safety and comfort of all visitors, no late seating or re-admission is permitted.
Due to technical difficulties in the planetarium, we will observe the following show times until further notice. We hope to return to our regular schedule as soon possible.
Tuesday – Saturday:
1:00, 2:00, 3:00 & 4:00 PM
2:00, 3:00 & 4:00 PM
