When it comes time to get out of the house with the family - or take a break from them - this holiday season, there is a fully immersive experience that can help reduce stress and it's waiting for you in Southern Indiana.

A Magical Place in Southern Indiana

Located in Southern Indiana, Evansville is home to the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, & Science, as well as the Koch Immersive Theatre and Planetarium. Located at 411 Southeast Riverside Drive, the Evansville Museum offers a diverse educational experience for visitors with both its permanent collection, as well as its visiting exhibits. In addition to the museum, the Koch Immersive Theatre and Planetarium frequently hosts incredible sound and light experiences.

More Than Just Planets and Constellations

When you think of visiting a planetarium, you likely think of planets, constellations, and outer space, and truth be told, you're not wrong. However, as someone who loves a good visit to the planetarium, I can promise you that there is so much more to experience under that domed roof. I have seen both planetary displays and laser light shows set to iconic rock albums like Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Metallica's Master of Puppets. Evansville's Koch Immersive Theatre and Planetarium will be hosting an incredible display pairing both audio and visuals to create a mesmerizing, stress relieving, experience.
