Project Description

The Spartanburg County Public Library Planetarium will feature a 5,000 SF facility and that houses a 45’ domed planetarium theater with 125 seats and additional spaces for STEAM, makerspace, and other learning activities and programs. Dedicated to lifelong learning, the planetarium will offer free educational experiences to all visitors. One of the main features of the learning center will be a Foucault pendulum that will hang in the lobby area of the new building. The facility will bring pedestrian traffic to the city’s historic downtown and build county-wide partnerships with schools, universities, and businesses.
