Planetarium

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 digital projector was purchased with a gift from the Naylor Family Fund and the Community Trust Foundation. It is a Digitarium Zeta and is capable of full-dome videos.

Planetarium funded in part by the Community Trust Foundation
