Description

The Robinson Planetarium, built in 1966, features a 30 foot dome and a Spitz A-3-P star projector. The planetarium is named after Herbert Robinson a distinguished industrialist, who provided funds for the construction of the facility. In 2012, renovations funded with generous gifts from the Maurice and Dorothy Stubnitz Foundation gave the planetarium a bold new look and Fulldome capabilities.

First, the planetarium is used for teaching Astronomy courses taught at Adrian College. Second, entertaining and educational programs are presented in the planetarium throughout the academic year.
