Santa’s Secret Star

11AM & 2PM

What? Santa has lost his compass and can’t find his way home? Sounds like a disaster in the making! Can the stars help? Come and learn about the day and night sky and how the stars seem to make pictures in the sky in our holiday show.

This planetarium show is destined to be one of your holiday favorites.

Learn how YOU, too, can find Santa’s secret star!



Season of Light


Season of Light is a perennial guest favorite. Our traditional holiday show deals with customs and celebrations of the winter season around the world and through time. The show explains Christmas trees, the origin of the Menorah, Santa Claus, and the Star of Bethlehem. It’s soul-satisfying and heart-warming.

Guest will learn about the timing of the seasonal holidays, the accomplishments of early civilizations in the development of the traditions of the season, and why we celebrate by giving light to this time of year. Come enjoy the darkest—and the brightest!—part of the year!
