Long Description:
The Neag Planetarium is one of the lesser known treasures of Berks County. Sitting next to the Reading Museum, it is often ignored but once you enter its doors, you are carried into another world. The Planetarium offers many programs for school age children, using stories to teach about the stars. From their website, here is a description of their most popular show called In My Backyard.

Our most popular program for first-time younger viewers of The Planetarium. The show is hosted and narrated by Fred Penner, famed host of many children’s programs on the Nickelodeon children’s network, and author of countless children’s books on many aspects of life. The show begins with Fred greeting the audience and an introduction of his special helper, Arnie the Arrow. Then it’s off to explore things large and small in the backyard-from the colors of the rainbow to counting the ladybugs on a rose. After looking at the reasons for seasons, the stars begin to appear and we take a look at the Big and Little Dippers, and Leo the Lion. After learning about our nine planets, we take a closer look at the moon. Before we know it, the sun is rising and we’re encouraged to explore the wonders and beauty of our own backyards.

Adults are not forgotten either. The Planetarium offers Lazur Music Shows. Their description explains: How do you see your music? Imagine yourself on a fantastic “roller-coaster ride” through vivid 3-D graphic environments that pulsate to the rhythm of a high-energy music mix featuring today’s popular bands like Radiohead, U2, Coldplay, the Queens of the Stone Age and The Flaming Lips. It’s a unique digital experience! Their current listings feature music by Pink Floyd.
