MOR Stellar Performances

Taylor Planetarium

Effective Sunday, March 15, the Taylor Planetarium is temporarily closed. 


Join us for a breathtaking view of the cosmos!

All planetarium shows are included with the price of museum admission and run for approximately 30 minutes. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the doors opening for seating 10 minutes before the scheduled showtimes. Please note, the doors will close precisely on the hour to start all shows, and admission cannot be allowed after that time due to the dark conditions and safety concerns. All showtimes are subject to change or cancellation without notice.

The Taylor Planetarium at Museum of the Rockies offers Digistar 4K digital projection on a 40-foot dome. Developed by Evans & Sutherland, this state-of-the-art projection system allows visitors to experience our universe and our world in vivid colors, dramatic motion, and brilliant displays of light.

Supervolcanoes

We are bringing back a popular show for the 40th anniversary of the Mount Saint Helens explosion (May 18, 1980). Explore the rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks beneath the surface of the Earth. The story of these big blowouts is a tale of havoc and mayhem: mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. In this unique and immersive experience, you will explore the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system. Can a supervolcano erupt in our time? The answer to that question is surprisingly close to home. Benedict Cumberbatch narrates this show.

Chasing the Ghost Particle: From the South Pole to the Edge of the Universe
Monday – Friday | 1 p.m.
​Saturday & Sunday | 1 & 4 p.m.
Deep in the ice at the heart of Antarctica, scientists are detecting and using tiny and elusive particles called neutrinos to explore the insides of stars and galaxies. These ghostly neutrinos give us an exclusive look into exploding stars and black holes. You will get stunning views of the most remote locations on Earth, to the unexplored regions of the cosmos on a journey you will never forget.

The Big Sky Tonight
​Saturday & Sunday | 2 p.m.
The skies are full of bright stars and familiar constellations We will investigate winter and spring stars, planets, constellations, and a few fun, deep space objects for those who want to know where to point their optics. The winter version of our show will run through March 16, and you will see supernova remnants and planets. The spring version begins on March 21, and you will be looking at galaxies and asterisms. This is an original MOR production and includes live narration.

The Little Star That Could (Children’s Show)
​Saturday & Sunday | 10 a.m.
Join us for a story about an average yellow star on a search for planets of his own to warm and protect. Along his way, he encounters other stars, learns what makes each star special, and discovers that stars can combine to form clusters and galaxies. Eventually, the Little Star finds his planets, and each is introduced to you along
