Our story started with Tony Sudekum. A Nashville native and president of Crescent Amusement Company, we were privileged to number him among the museum’s 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.
Throughout 69 years and counting, two complete rebuilds, and other upgrades along the way, 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.
