The University of Memphis-Lambuth M. D. Anderson Planetarium was built in 1967 and rededicated in 1973 through a generous grant from the M. D. Anderson Foundation in honor of Jackson native and philanthropist, Monroe Dunaway Anderson. The Planetarium’s 30-foot dome seats 60 and presents regularly scheduled public shows via its Digitarium Alpha 2+ digital projector.
One of the few public planetariums in West Tennessee outside of Memphis, the University of Memphis Lambuth M. D. Anderson Planetarium serves the public as well as community and school groups with a wide range of presentations. Schools or groups interested in scheduling a show should email email@example.com, or call Holley Wood, coordinator, at 731-425-7368.
