The Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium
Combining interactive astronomy education with spectacular public shows and night sky viewing opportunities, the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium continues to be one of Kansas City's greatest connections to the night sky.
Built as part of Union Station's renovations in the late 1990s, the Arvin Gottlieb Planetarium's 60-foot dome and recently upgraded state-of-the-art projection system makes it one of the largest and highest resolution planetariums in the Midwest. In addition to daily public shows, Union Station offers a number of opportunities in the planetarium for groups to take advantage of including field trips, Girl and Boy Scout badge workshops, summer camps, and other educational opportunities, as well as business meetings or general facility rental options.
