The Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium

The Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium at the University of Louisville is designed to provide a unique learning environment primarily for astronomy and space science education. The facility opened on April 24, 2001.

Programmatically, the Gheens Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium provides daily public and school programs. In addition, the Roving Astronomer Program, where representatives from the planetarium provide programs at schools, civic, and community groups, further extend the influence of the facility.
