Albany’s Henry Hudson Planetarium to Close Next Week
If you grew up in the Capital Region, there were a few places that you went for a school trip or with your family. One of the more popular ones is going away.
Do you remember going to the Henry Hudson Planetarium when you were growing up? It was probably one of the top school trips growing up. Well, according to NewsChannel 13, there's a new vision about to be put in the familiar space in Quackenbush Square. Not only are they getting rid of the Henry Hudson Planetarium, they're also getting rid of the Albany Heritage Exhibit.
The exhibit is planned to close this Friday, February 14th and the Planetarium is scheduled to close February 20th to give kids one last chance to go during Winter Break.
In the space, it will be replaced by the American Heritage Museum and the other side will still house the Albany Visitors Center, though it may be getting a facelift. Apparently, they're looking for new ways to bring people into the space and we'll just have to wait and see what that completely entails.
If you're still looking for a planetarium to visit, miSci in Schenectady still has their planetarium open with continuous exhibits.
