• The Maumus Center

    The Maumus Center is proud to announce the summer public planetarium show dates. Please click here for ticket information.

    The Maumus Center was the first high school in St. Bernard Parish and was opened in 1929. Since then, the building has been an elementary school and a cultural arts center. Today, the Maumus Center is a premier facility spotlighting the sciences and our community's rich, diverse history. The center's primary goal is to provide students and the community opportunities for lifelong learning through interactive and multidisciplinary exhibits. The center includes a planetarium, a food science lab, a beautiful theater, and several exhibit rooms. 

    Since its opening, students throughout the St. Bernard Parish School System have had the opportunity to experience the wonder and excitement that the building has to offer. Starting in the summer of 2017, the school district will begin opening its doors to public showings in the planetarium.

    The center is managed by Gena Asevedo, a longtime educator in the parish. For more information regarding the center, please call 504-301-0239.
