Our Story

Since opening in 1999, the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium has been and continues to be Kansas City’s greatest connection to the universe. With upgrades in 2017 to technology, speakers, and seating, the guest experience becomes more and more immersive. As the interest in the stars grew, so did the reach of our educators. Featuring a weekly Facebook live stream that ties in our current astronomical events, guests can discover and explore not only within the Planetarium but in the comfort of their own home.
