Goddard Planetarium

Comets, quasars, black holes—the night sky is filled with things wild and wonderful. Like the imagination of a child, space is beautiful and boundless.

The 120-seat Robert H. Goddard Planetarium presents star shows, multi-media presentations, and hands-on activities for children and families that help us understand the changing universe and the impact of space science on our lives.
At special times throughout the year, the Roswell Astronomy Club presents Star Parties at the Planetarium, using their telescopes to view events in our solar system.

The Planetarium was opened in 1969 as a collaboration between the Roswell Independent School District and the Roswell Museum and Art Center.

Join us for family-friendly programming every Wednesday, September - December. Show times are 1:30 pm and 3:30 pm. Shows will also be offered on Saturday, once a month: September 24, October 22, November 26, and December 31 at 1:30 pm.

Touch the Stars: Teach Bigger is a digital conversion project currently being undertaken at the Goddard Planetarium. This fundraising campaign will culminate in converting our nearly 50 year old analog system into cutting-edge digital technology through the Digistar 6 projection system. The Roswell Museum and Art Center Foundation has committed its resources and support to raising the funding necessary to realize this goal. Ultimately, this project will allow the Goddard Planetarium to remain relevant to 21st century audiences, serve as a catalyst for space science education, and usher in STEM and STEAM programming for areas schools.
