Haile Planetarium


If Northern Kentucky University is closed due to inclement weather, all shows at Haile Planetarium are canceled for that date. 

Welcome to Haile Planetarium

Haile Planetarium is one of the hidden gems of Northern Kentucky University. Haile Planetarium is open to the public several times a month for free shows. The largest use of the Haile Planetarium is for the thousands of P-12 students who visit each year for a free field trip. As part of the Physics, Geology, and Engineering Technology Department, Haile Planetarium is located on the fourth floor of the Science Center.

Mission Statement

Haile Planetarium is an educational facility focused on inspiring appreciation and awareness of the universe in NKU students, faculty, and staff from all over campus, regional P-12 students, and the wider community. Astronomy is our starting point; from there we spread into the wider universe of the sciences and reach into literature, art, music, and beyond.

Can you help us reach for the stars? 

The Planetarium is in dire need of some upgrades that will affect our ability to continue to offer shows to the public.
Your donation, no matter the size, can have a direct impact on Haile Planetarium continuing to be a free resource for our community.
