The Cook Education Center Planetarium at Navarro College is a large circular theater with a 60 foot diameter dome screen and 200 seats that specializes in showing informative astronomy and science themed programs.

The planetarium is primarily used as a Navarro College classroom and as an educational field trip destination for area schools and community organizations.

Teachers can find field trip information in our Teacher's Corner. For a complete list of our presentations, please visit the Planetarium Show Library.

During the school year, the planetarium is used exclusively for Navarro College courses and group scheduling Monday through Friday. The planetarium is closed during all college holidays.

Our schedule is subject to change in response to the needs of Navarro College, large groups, private events, or equipment breakdowns and maintenance.
