SUNSET BEACH, NC (WWAY) – It’s Sunset Beach’s hidden gem: the Ingram Planetarium.
Stepping into the dome theater is like stepping into your backyard.
That’s what makes this planetarium so special.
“We definitely focus on what you can see here in the Carolina’s. You can come in during the day and see what the stars are going to be like later on that evening,” said Will Snyder, the planetarium’s manager.
Make sure to plan your visit ahead of time.
The planetarium offers different shows each hour. Some are geared to different audiences.
Most shows are educational and interactive. Some shows are more fun. All of them, however, are meant to be entertaining.
You’ll also learn more than astronomy.
The Paul Dennis Science Hall offers a hands-on science lesson for kids.
While inside, kids can learn about augmented reality, nanotechnology and hurricanes.
