The Buehler Planetarium & Observatory is located on a beautiful tropical garden site at Broward Community College's Central Campus in Davie, Florida. Surrounded by lovely palm trees, the planetarium was built in 1965 through the generosity of the aviation pioneer Emil Buehler. In thirty-five years the planetarium has presented planetarium shows and astronomical programs to almost a million visitors. As a result of a substantial gift from the Emil Buehler Trust, the planetarium was completely renovated, and reopened in September 1988 with a Zeiss M1015 star projector and a sophisticated computerized automation system.
