Create an itinerary including Center for Earth & Space Science Education
For decades, East Texas schoolchildren were introduced to science and space at Tyler Junior College’s Hudnall Planetarium. When the lights dimmed, all eyes turned skyward and imaginations were sparked as the mysteries of the universe unfolded.

The new Center for Earth & Space Science Education at TJC brings this life-changing experience to a new generation of East Texans. State-of-the-art facilities and expanded programming make the new center a premier field trip destination for surrounding schools and an educational attraction for TJC and the community at large.

In addition to a hands-on exhibit area, instructional/workshop space and a series of outdoor educational plazas, the Center features a domed theater equipped with Digistar 5, the latest in digital projection technology. TJC is one of only two facilities in Texas to utilize this new system – and one of only 50 worldwide. Similar to IMAX, the Digistar 5 offers giant-screen capabilities which can showcase astronomy and other science-based programming, as well as geography and history programming.
Center for Earth & Space Science Education is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • We love observatories and planetariums. We try and go wherever we visit. This facility is on the Tyler Junior College campus. Great planetarium and very knowledgeable PnD staff that run the movies...

  • Went to the Spooky Space show with our 6 year old and had fun. He mostly enjoyed playing in the velocity exhibit, but had a good experience overall!
  • This is a place I would go to again. It is $18 for 2 to see all the shows they had but unfortunately we only saw 2 shows because my grandson got a little restless sitting down. 😕 When I come back to visit my daughter and family again, we will be coming back here again! The lady at the showing said that the skiing show was real good!
  • My 4 year old loved it. And so did I. the child space show held her attention, which is hard to do. The place was clean and staff very friendly.
  • Saw space park 360 and laser mania today. They are doing online tickets and social distancing seating which was very nice. The space park makes you feel like you are on the ride, amazing! The laser show is beautiful with all types of music. Everyone there was very nice, it's inexpensive. Good time.
  • Employees were very nice and considerate. The asteroid show was amazing. Kids have tons of fun and qre always smiling. Would definitely go again!
