Weekly Public Planetarium Shows planetarium shows given by the BYU Astronomical Society are held most Friday nights.
The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM. There is no late admittance. Because it gets very dark in the planetarium, the shows may not be appropriate for some young children. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to leave once the show has begun.
After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes set up for the public to look through.
The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on the BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.
The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures is pleased to announce its newest exhibit, “Nuchu: Voices of the Ute People.”
The exhibit celebrates the rich heritage of the Ute throughout northeastern Utah, including Utah Valley. In the exhibit, their voices tell the story of their vibrant history and life.
The exhibit contains items collected around the Vernal area of Utah during the 1930s and 1940s. The text and labels for this exhibit are taken from interviews with Ute tribal members over the past 15 years, providing an opportunity to hear how the Ute view the items and their own heritage. Helping to fulfill the MPC’s mission to train future museum professionals, “students have combed through hours of interviews and texts, collaborated on the design of the galleries, and built the displays,” Kari Nelson, curator of education, said.
The Brigham Young University Museum of Art is a four-story, modern facility of more than 102,000 square feet in size.
