The Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art turned 15 this year and to celebrate, we are showcasing the best of the collection, new acquisitions, honoring collectors and artists, and digging into the vault to unearth never-before-seen works. This two-part series will begin with summer-themed exhibitions that pay tribute to our beautiful area in Paradise Found. The celebration continues October through December with Fall into Greatness, including themed exhibitions, activities and an installation of Rattner’s studio.

Jupiter continues to dominate the evening skies through June and July. In late June, as spring gives way to summer, the ringed planet Saturn finally makes its debut. Learn about these planets and see them first-hand with our observatory telescopes!
The planetarium offers two free public shows on Friday nights at 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. Shows are hosted by resident astronomer Dr. Craig Joseph and feature live narration with images displayed by computer-controlled projectors.
The planetarium comfortably seats 46 and admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Planetarium shows last approximately 45 minutes, and no one can be admitted after the show begins. Children are welcome as long as they are 5 or older. The observatory and portable telescopes are available to the public after planetarium shows, weather permitting.
