Toms River - Robert J. Novins Planetarium

Ocean County College, College Drive, P.O. Box 2001

The Novins Planetarium Sky Theater re-opened October 2010 with some of the latest projection technology to bring you the universe in innovative and exciting new ways. The planetarium dome is a virtual 3-D video space, no longer restricted to simply an earthbound view of the sky, we can now take you on a journey from the smallest size scales to the edge of the universe. When we do want to see the night sky as viewed from Earth, our new fiber-optic star projector will provide a beautiful, crisp view of the night sky. Check back often for the latest information, special events, and how you can become a part of our universe.

Our family of five visits the Novins Planetarium often, enjoying many of the programs there. We just had our son's 5th birthday party there and it was great! From booking the party to the end clean up, the incredible and friendly staff members went out of their way to make the experience pleasant and stress free. Jake, Tom, Sarah and Amanda were all genuinely courteous and helpful. Jake and Tom were awesome, helping guide the party every step of the way-even assembling party bags and hanging up the pinata! Sarah was great with the kids and even took song requests (mini-laser light show at the end) and tailored the show to accommodate our sugared up, short attention span group of 5 year olds. We would very much recommend the Planetarium for a birthday party-both the program and the staff make it fun and budget friendly!
