Visit the Renovated Arlington’s David M. Brown Planetarium

Posted On: May 1

Arlington’s David M. Brown Planetarium is a beloved local institution. Thanks to bountiful community support, it was completely renovated and reopened with new projectors and exhibits in 2012, and the positive reviews are still rolling in.

You can take the whole family to a Stars Tonight show in the dome that explains what the night sky will look like in the coming days and weeks, and allows you to learn what constellations you should look for at this time of year. The prices here are very low ($5 for adults and $3 for kids), which means this planetarium can be a good choice when you want to enjoy a fun family outing without emptying your wallet. Insider tip: this planetarium is associated with the Arlington School District, and during school hours the facilities are reserved for school groups only, so be sure you plan your own visits for the weekend or evening.
