  • If P-H-M schools are closed or P-H-M evening activities are canceled, the DVT/Planetarium is also closed and the shows for that day will also be canceled. If a show is canceled due to a P-H-M closure, all pre-paid tickets will be refunded. Otherwise, tickets are non-refundable.




The Arthur M. Klinger Planetarium is an outstanding educational resource to P-H-M schools and the greater St. Joseph County community, supporting learning across the curriculum and at all grade levels.


Open during the P-H-M School year. It provides “digital” lessons projected in the state-of-the-art dome to P-H-M students and teachers, as well as hundreds of students and educators from neighboring districts who also visit for scheduled field trips. 


Additionally, the facility hosts nearly 50 informative and entertaining public shows each year, with topics ranging from Astronomy to Rock & Roll.  These shows are offered at a nominal cost and are also open to members of the general public. 


The Arthur M. Klinger Planetarium also includes an air and space museum that contains artifacts donated by astronauts and some which are on loan from the Johnson Space Center and the Smithsonian. Some artifacts have actually traveled to space and been on or come from the Moon! So plan on arriving for your show a bit early to take time to look around.


As part of P-H-M’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing on July 20, 2019, we asked former DVT & Planetarium Director Art Klinger to share his thoughts on the importance of space exploration. Click here to watch the video ...
