Ever dream of breaking free of Earth's gravity and exploring the wild terrain of different planets and their moons?

Gear up for "The Great Planet Adventures" — a mobile planetarium show in the Putnam's Discovery Dome — which puts you in the seat of some of the wildest rides of our solar system! Zip-line across the scorched Mercury, snowmobile in icy Pluto and glide over the otherworldly lakes of Titan!

The Dome experience is fully immersive, and viewers are presented with planetarium-style videos and images from an advanced dual-mirror projection system.

Everyone is able to partake in the Discovery Dome experience as the dome has a full-size stand-up door which guests can walk through; no crawling or shoe removal is necessary. The dome is also wheelchair accessible.


"The Great Planet Adventure" show times: 11:15 a.m. | 12:15 p.m. | 1:30 p.m. 


  • $4 for Discovery Dome by itself

  • $2.50 Discovery Dome add-on to exhibit admission
