Timmons Planetarium Furman University

Try to find a university that has a planetarium inside a classroom and you’ll find Furman on a very short list.

With a 24-foot diameter and a high definition system, our planetarium is a virtual reality simulator that brings the galaxy to you. This cutting-edge facility allows our renowned faculty to shed light on the origins of the universe, and pinpoint planets that have favorable conditions to support life. You'll be able to view the solar system from multiple angles, and examine images generated by the Hubble Space Telescope. Frankly, we don't think there is a bad seat in the house.
