Charles W. Brown Planetarium

Combination Field Trips

Many teachers combine a planetarium field trip with a visit to Christy Woods, a botanical garden that is a short walk from the planetarium. Call 765-285-2641 to arrange a tour of Christy Woods.

The David Owsley Museum of Art at Ball State University is next door to the planetarium. For tours and self-guided visits, complete the online Group Visit Form at least three weeks in advance and/or contact Cathy Bretz, Education Program Coordinator, at (765) 285-3371.

Please be sure to note that both Christy Woods and the David Owsley Museum of Art accommodate smaller group sizes than the Planetarium when making your reservations. 

The museum staff put together an informative list of nearby attractions that you might also consider visiting as part of your trip to the planetarium.
