“We are extremely excited about the debut of ‘Seven Wonders’ in our facility. This is a very interesting show that will take audiences on a voyage through time and space through magnificent full dome images,” said Gerardo A. Perez, director, TAMIU LBV Planetarium.

“Seven Wonders” features the seven wonders of the ancient world and investigates theories of how these marvels were created. Visitors will see ancient Egypt’s Great Pyramids and Lighthouse of Alexandria, wander through the Hanging Gardens of Babylon and stand in the shadow of the towering Colossus of Rhodes.

The show also gives audiences a glimpse of some of the natural wonders far beyond this planet.
