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.
