Description

As the only planetarium administered by the National Park Service, this is a unique highlight of Rock Creek Park. Here you and the kids can view traditional "night sky" astronomy programs as well as shows related to local history, including one about how slaves used constellations as guides to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

For more information and to see the current program schedule, visit the park's website.
