Sudekum Planetarium



Sudekum Planetarium’s state-of-the-art giant screen 63-foot dome is inside Adventure Science Center. Our showtimes include planetarium shows and featured events like concerts and Yoga Under the Stars. If you’re sensitive to light or sound, our sensory-friendly shows offer a more comfortable experience. If bright lights and loud music are more your speed, come catch a laser show!

If you have questions, give us a call at 615-401-5092 or send us a note at Ready to look up? Don’t forget this month’s Star Chart!


About our planetarium theatre

Our story started with Tony Sudekum. A Nashville native and president of Crescent Amusement Company, we were priviliged to number him among our founding board members. After Tony’s passing in 1946, his widow made a donation to purchase our first star projector. Armand Spitz, the inventor of that projector, was the guest of honor at a ceremony dedicating the Sudekum Planetarium on March 3, 1952.

After renovations and two complete rebuilds, our planetarium has grown and improved. Whether you’re looking for laser shows, unique programs, or a modern version of the classic planetarium sky show, we’ve got you covered. Come explore with us!
