  • Overview

    A MESSAGE FOR OUR VALUED GUESTS: As part of Mayor Sheehan’s efforts to support redevelopment at and around Quackenbush Square in Downtown Albany, the Irish American Heritage Museum - currently located at 370 Broadway - will make its new home at this location, 25 Quackenbush Square. In order to accommodate the museum’s move, the Henry Hudson Planetarium will close its doors on February 20, 2020. Please see our February star show schedule under the Events tab below. Discover Albany has been serving as the management entity for the planetarium on behalf of the City of Albany for 22 years. We would like to take this time to express our appreciation for the generations of stargazers who have visited the planetarium over the years. Sincerely, The Discover Albany Team PLEASE NOTE: We anticipate a large turn-out for our February shows especially on February 15th. The planetarium can accommodate 60 people maximum per show. Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Based on the nature of our programming, once a star program has begun and the planetarium doors are closed, there is no admittance.
