The Downing Planetarium

Sited next to Science II, the Downing Planetarium and Space Museum was made possible by the generous donations and support of the late Dr. Harold Downing and his family, Tom and Cynthia Downing. Thousands of children from the schools of the Central Valley have enjoyed the shows in the Planetarium, and the activities in the Downing Space Museum right behind it.

Dr. Steven White from the Physics Department at Fresno State is the Planetarium Director.
