Experience. Learn. Share.
For years, it’s been the place where thousands of young people and adults come to learn about the universe and worlds beyond our reach.
The Erie Planetarium served as a resource for the Erie community for more than fifty years, and it continues today as the Yahn Planetarium, now a part of Penn State Behrend. The planetarium is located in the School of Science complex on the Behrend campus.
