Science Discovery Center and Planetarium

The A.J. Read Science Discovery Center of SUNY Oneonta is a free, hands-on museum for people of all ages and abilities. Our mission is to connect visitors to the joy of scientific discovery through authentic interactive exhibits. The SUNY Oneonta Planetarium, located in the basement of Perna Science Building (a short walk from the Center) has been presenting live night-sky shows under its dome for over 50 years. Updated with a digital projection system, the SUNY Oneonta Planetarium can not only show the night sky, but also transport you across our solar system, galaxy and to the very edge of the known universe.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control, we are suspending all in-person SDC and Planetarium programming and open museum hours through January 2021. We will be following the situation and will provide updates as needed.
