The OSU Planetarium, located in Smith Laboratory on the Ohio State University main campus in Columbus, serves the University and central-Ohio communities with educational programs in Astronomy.  Operated since 1968 by the Department of Astronomy, the Planetarium is a 63-seat 30-foot dome theater with a state-of-the-art Spitz SciDome XD digital projection system that gives exquisite views of the night sky from Columbus, and lets us take you on digital journeys to the planets, stars, and distant galaxies.

IMPORTANT UPDATE (4/2/14):
Our private shows are currently booked solid through July. 
We are not currently accepting requests for private shows at the moment. As soon as we are able to start booking for August and into the fall, we will advise via our website and facebook site.
