Explore the night sky, fly through the Solar System, explore the universe, and learn about new astronomical discoveries!


The Pierce College Science Dome is a 58-seat digital planetarium, the only one of its kind in the South Puget Sound region.  This immersive and interactive facility has a 38’ dome-shaped screen that allows visitors to; view the night sky from anywhere in the known universe on a cloudy day, be immersed in an alien environment with breathtaking full-dome images, explore the Egyptian pyramids and so much more!

The Science Dome is used in Pierce College classes, available for visiting preK-12 school groups and open to the public.

We host special public events, offer public shows, private shows and field trips.
