Edelman Planetarium Shows for Kids in South Jersey
May 3 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm$2
NOTE: Effective March 16 to April 30, all events, public shows, observatory open houses and field trips scheduled to take place at the Edelman Planetarium will be canceled. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience, but are doing this out of an abundance of caution. Our goal is to limit the risk of infection from COVID-19 and provide a healthy environment for all visitors.
For visitors with children 5-10 years old, we suggest our shorter family shows. They run about half an hour, do not include a live presentation and cost only $2 per person! Each month Edelman Planetarium plays a different title.
