In 2011, after comprehensive renovation the Charles Hayden Planetarium in the Museum of Science reopened with a STARMASTER projector from Carl Zeiss. It is visited by about 200,000 guests every year, including 20,000 schoolchildren and has expanded its educational offering. This is impressively exemplified by shows in which, for example, actors are directly involved or which interactively incorporate live demonstrations and visitors. After Kenner (New Orleans), Boston is the second US city to operate a STARMASTER planetarium.
