The Center for Earth & Space Science Education
The Tyler Texas Museum was established in 1963 as the Hudnall Planetarium.
Backstory and Context
When it was first built in 1963, the Center for Earth & Space Education, known at that time as the Hudnall Planetarium, boasted a dome that measured 30 feet in diameter. After undergoing major renovations and an expansion in 2011, the planetarium now houses a 40-foot diameter theater with a state-of-the-art high-resolution digital projection system, and new exhibit, classroom and instructional spaces, as well as outdoor educational plazas.
