TJC Earth & Space Science Center


In 1963, Tyler Junior College (TJC) opened the first planetarium located in East Texas. Originally known as the Hudnall Planetarium, it was reopened in 2011 after a major expansion and renovation of its facilities and renamed The Center for Earth and Space Science Education.

Home to the first 40’ Spitz nano-seam domed theatre in East Texas, the state-of-the-art Planetarium features an immersive, full-dome video experience. The new theater is equipped with Digitarium Aethos, the latest in digital projection technology.

The facility also features interactive displays and exhibits, classroom and outdoor play spaces.
