'The stars have aligned': Milwaukee Public Museum's Planetarium to reopen July 22

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- The Milwaukee Public Museum will reopen the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium on Thursday, July 22.

The planetarium is Wisconsin's largest planetarium screen. Visitors can experience programs every hour between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Admission to the programs are included as part of the museum's admission.

“The stars have aligned and we are excited to be able to bring visitors and families back into the Planetarium in a safe and educational way,” says MPM Planetarium Director Bob Bonadurer. “Looking up at the sky above and feeling the wonder and smallness those views create is a deeply human experience. People from cultures all around the world and throughout human history have stargazed — it connects us to each other, to the past and to the natural world around us. After so many months apart, that connection will be critically important.”

The planetarium will debut the big-screen program "Stargazers of Africa" upon its reopening.

Reservations for museum admission can be made online or by calling 414-278-2728
