New Jersey's First Planetarium

The Alice and Leonard Dreyfuss Planetarium is a spectacular interactive theater for learning about astronomy, space and planetary science.  Audiences can explore the constellations, travel through the Solar System, visit distant galaxies and soar to the edge of the Universe.

Planetarium Upgrade

The Dreyfuss Planetarium has undergone a major upgrade thanks to a federal grant through the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).  The upgrade includes the addition of "Full Dome" digital video, a surround sound system and exciting new state-of-the-art programs.
