    About the Space Lab Planetarium

    The Williamsville planetarium opened in 1969 and is the only K-12 school-based planetarium in Western New York.  The 75-seat facility is operated and maintained by the Williamsville Central School District but is open to schools across Western New York.  Several public shows are presented each year free of charge and a variety of astronomy programs for both children and adults are offered through Williamsville Community Education at a nominal cost.  The planetarium hosts about 20,000 visitors annually.
