October Free First Sunday + Planetarium Groundbreaking

Louisiana Art & Science Museum

Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 1:00pm - 5:00pm

This weekend LASM will kick off a month-long celebration honoring the 20th anniversary of the groundbreaking for the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium. Join us on Sunday, October 3 for free admission to the museum and Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, sponsored by Mr. Madison Charles Lamar!

You'll also be able to learn about the "starball" which once projected 8,900 stars on the dome of the ExxonMobil Space Theater. While you are here, you can also pose for a family photo, snag a few space-themed goodies, and chat with a NASA Solar System  Ambassador. Special films will be shown in the Planetarium this Sunday and all month long! Join us as we celebrate 20 years...and just think where we will be in the next 20!
