About Flandrau Science Center

Located at the heart of the University of Arizona campus the Flandrau Science Center explores our universe from earth to space and everything in-between, bringing science alive for young and life-long learners alike. Changing exhibits through the year focus on biology, energy, optics and more, weaving in ground-breaking UA research and revealing the world of science careers for budding scientists.

Sit back, relax and tour the universe in southern Arizona’s only Planetarium Theater. Our star projector can project more than 8,000 stars, perfectly recreating the visible objects of the night sky hour by hour. On family days, students from the UA College of Science lead Science Discovery activities in physics, marine biology and other areas. 

We also operate the only weekly, free, public astronomy program in Arizona. Stop by the Flandrau observatory and let our volunteer astronomers show you Saturn's rings, the cloud belts of Jupiter, the Andromeda galaxy and other stunning and beautiful images that will forever transform the way you see our own world.
