Weekly Public Planetarium Shows planetarium shows given by the BYU Astronomical Society are held most Friday nights.
The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM. There is no late admittance. Because it gets very dark in the planetarium the shows may not be appropriate for some young children. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to leave once the show has begun.
After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes setup for the public to look through.
The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.
The Museum of Peoples and Cultures hosts a variety of date nights throughout the semester. Each date night is themed and includes relevant activities and refreshments. Prices vary, but the average cost is between $10-15 per couple.
Come join us for an evening of open gaming in our game parlor. Bring your own favorite games or tap into our demo game library. This is the best opportunity to try out some games you’ve had your eye on. Individual table reservations are available for small groups. Call store for details.
Galleries in downtown Provo are open late every first Friday night for the Downtown Provo Gallery Stroll. Held from 6:00-9:00 p.m. on the first Friday of every month, this event is free to the public and often includes refreshments, guest artists and live music. Begin at the Covey Center for the Arts Gallery (425 West Center Street), and receive directions to other downtown venues.
Take a step into the past and bring a date to BYU’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures (MPC) to experience a night of Egyptian culture and cuisine on Friday, November 12th. The Egyptian-themed date night “Sphinxes and Sweethearts” will begin at 7:00 that evening.
The date night includes 4 games, a craft, refreshments, and prizes. First on the agenda is a mummy-wrapping race in which one person must wrap up their date like a mummy. The first couple to finish wins a prize. Couples will then receive score cards and go into the Museum’s classroom to play a round of 3 different games: Pyramid, Egyptian Balderdash, and Matching of the Gods. The couple with the highest total wins a prize. The final prizes are awarded to couples with the best craft, after they take time to use the MPC’s own “Rosetta stone” to paint their own hieroglyphs. Mediterranean refreshments are served.
“Couples get to learn about the Egyptian culture in a really unique way,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC. “Every element of the date night – the games, the craft, the food – provides interesting information about Ancient Egypt.”
Tickets for the date night are $10 per couple and will be available at the WSC Information Desk beginning November 8th. For more information visit mpc.byu.edu or call 801.422.0020.
