Star Lab

Thursday, April 4, 2024. 10 – 11 am

Our StarLab can comfortably hold 18 adults, or a combination of 22 adults and children. We do not recommend this program for children under the age of 5 due to the nature of needing to be able to quietly sit still in this enclosed area during the program, as the shape of the StarLab amplifies all sounds inside. Please note that attendees will need to crawl through a 3’ high tunnel to get into the planetarium, and seating is on pads on the floor on the inside.

Reservations required due to space limitations: Please letting us know you are attending by calling (518) 251-2505 or sending an email to:

Plattsburgh State Art Museum Presents

Celebrating the Path to Totality With Rockwell Kent

Through May 18, 2024

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum and its staff are anxiously awaiting this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to behold the total eclipse that will occur in Plattsburgh on April 8, 2024. In anticipation of this momentous event, we explored our collections for celestial representations to mark the occasion. The works in the exhibit were the result of a commission of the Hayden Planetarium for LIFE magazine on November 1, 1937 and shows Four Ways In Which The World May End.
