About Us

The Barlow Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley opened to the public on March 20, 1998.

This is a world-class facility for 3-D excitement, giant full-color special effects and crystal-clear, five-channel, 10,000 watt surround sound.

The Barlow Planetarium has a 48-foot projection dome and seats 98 people, with four additional spaces for wheelchair access.

An Evans and Sutherland Digistar II® star projector recreates a realistic night sky and 3-D effects which pull the audience into a virtual world.

Interactive keypads at each seat allow audiences to get involved in performances.

Cutting-edge Sky Skan® video projection and automation systems make this planetarium state-of-the-art.
