Ingram Planetarium

Students and scouts will be blown away and full of wonder when they experience a show like “Dinosaur Passage to Pangia” and “Back to the Moon for Good.” Also available at the planetarium are live star shows, laser light and music shows, and other planetarium programs. Some large groups need to be split, but that’s okay! The Paul Dennis Science Hall offers interactive exhibits like a hurricane simulator, augmented reality, and nanotechnology. With advanced planning, a planetarium visit can be combined with a tour of the Museum of Coastal Carolina.
