Group Visits

Group and Field Trip Update

Dear teachers, educators, and friends of Flandrau:

Due to increased concerns regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and in the interest of the health of our visitors, staff and community, Flandrau is temporarily closed until further notice.

All Field Trips and Discovery Programs are cancelled until we can reopen.

We will continue to work closely with the University of Arizona to coordinate our efforts and will plan to reopen to the public when the time is right. Please continue to check our website and look for announcements via email and social media for updates. We look forward to welcoming you back to Flandrau in the future.

Stay healthy!
Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium

For your next group, scout or youth group experience, visit Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium!

A standard group visit will include a show in our FullDome Planetarium Theater, presented by one of our undergraduate "Console Captains". Your group will also explore STEM-focused, hands-on exhibits!

Group visits can be scheduled at various times during the week; however, those visits scheduled during regularly scheduled planetarium showtimes will not be able to chose a custom show. Click here to view our current show line-up

Short on time but still want to enjoy what Flandrau has to offer? We can customize your group visit; please let us know your time constraints in the notes section of the Group Request form.

Lastly, for a more private experience, visit our "Plan an Event" page for information about renting the entire Science Center for an after-hours event.
