The facility is used for providing outreach shows for community groups, giving weekend shows for the public, and holding University classes As a service to the community, the BYU Planetarium provides a few outreach shows for school groups, scout groups, youth groups, etc. for a discounted rate of 50 cents per person. These shows are given at regularly scheduled times. The outreach shows are given by reservation only.
Because it gets very dark in the planetarium, the shows may not be appropriate for some young children.
