Visit TCC’s Planetarium

Want to explore the stars without the hassle of space travel? Attend one of TCC’s planetarium shows!

TCC’s planetarium, located on the Virginia Beach campus, is home to a state-of-the-art Digistar 5 System with Boxer projectors, capable of producing an all-sky image across its 40-foot dome.

Admission is free and open to the public, but reservations are required for each show. You must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee your reservation. A very limited number of standby tickets will be available.
