Cook Education Center

The Cook Education Center is a multi-faceted educational facility featuring the largest planetarium dome in Texas (60 feet), a spacious conference area, Pearce Civil War and Western Art Museum, and the Hunters and Gatherers Exhibit. The center is dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of students, supporting teaching and learning at all levels, and enriching life for all who participate in activities there. Through exposure to multimedia presentations in the planetarium, children and adults broaden their understanding of various disciplines. The Cook Education Center provides events and catering services for corporate meetings, weddings, and special occasion parties. Please contact Carole Davenport. In addition to planetarium shows, the center offers 70 mm/large-format films. For more information, visit
