Tickets may be purchased online via our website, by calling 207.581.1341 during regular business hours, or at the box office. Tickets are available here. Advanced purchase is strongly encourages, as we frequently sell out.


Cleaning and Sanitizing

Versant Power Astronomy Center has installed hand sanitizer stations at our entrances, and will be doing a thorough cleaning of all touch points, seats, and restrooms prior to each program.  To assist us with this we ask that visitors refrain from bringing any food or drink into the facility.
