The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium brings the universe to you.
The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium is the largest single-lens planetarium in the world – and it’s right here in Jacksonville! What makes the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium so unique? It’s large dome – 60-foot in diameter – and its new technology, the Konica Minolta Super MediaGlobe II.
The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium is part of the renovated Alexander Brest Space Theater - and the first of its kind in Florida.
IMAGINE speeding faster than light to the edge of the known universe – and beyond.
