You’ll be delighted by these two seasonal shows at Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, just in time for the holidays. The holiday show schedule begins on Friday December 7 and runs through the first week of January. And we’ll have 2pm holiday shows every weekday starting on Friday, December 7.  All the shows are presented in the state-of-the-art Eos Planetarium Theater for a captivating, comfortable, fulldome experience.

Bring the grandparents and the grandkids to enjoy a holiday show and explore Flandrau’s interactive science exhibits – Happy Holidays from Flandrau!

Season of Light

Our annual family favorite “Season of Light” will fill you with seasonal sparkle! Aholiday classic, now in fulldome format, this showexplores the many festivals of light (including Christmas and Hanukah) that celebrate the spirit of renewal around the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year. Full of popular holiday music, you’ll learn the origins of today’s Christmas songs and customs. And you’ll discover how the dark days of winter have inspired luminous festival traditions in other times and cultures, and how all of those traditions connect back to astronomy. Noah Adams from National Public Radio narrates the show.

“Holiday Magic” Laser Music Show

Bring the whole family to ring in the season with our new “Holiday Magic” laser light music show, full of your favorite Christmas and seasonal songs that will leave everyone singing and smiling.
