The West Virginia Wesleyan College Planetarium serves the residents of Buckhannon and surrounding communities with regular public programs.
Our 40-seat Planetarium is located on the 2nd floor of Christopher Hall. Our new digital projector was purchased with a gift from the Naylor Family Fund. It is a Digitarium Zeta and is capable of full-dome videos.
Our grand re-opening is scheduled for Saturday September 2nd at 8 pm. Due to limited seating capacity, please RSVP to (304)473-8330 or email@example.com for the September 2nd show.
Our regular show times are at 8 pm on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month.
