WELCOME TO THE LAMPLIGHTER CIRCLE
The Lamplighter Circle, named after the Urban Lantern towering over the Museum’s main lobby, provides support for the Museum that keeps our lantern lit—offering an extraordinary learning environment for the Fort Worth community and beyond. Lamplighters make our lectures, world-class educational exhibits, IMAX films, and special events possible through their philanthropic giving.
Noble Planetarium Foyer
There’s plenty to see even before you enter the Noble Planetarium’s digital dome. Outside in the queuing area is a collection of some of the Museum’s most significant astronomical possessions, including:
The Spitz A-1 Starball, the original planetarium projector starball used by Miss Charlie Mary Noble in a canvas tent in the backyard of the original Fort Worth Children’s Museum in the early 1950s.
