I looked it up because I remember my older sister going to the planetarium with her school and I knew ‘69 had to be wrong because our family moved away from Houston in 1966.
I have changed the opening date to 1964, I found the article specifically about the history of the planetarium that clearly states it opened in 1964!

Yep. Just from personal experience I knew 1969 couldn't be right.

There was an infamous exhibit opening at the CAMH in 1977. This article about it is an excerpt from a book about the art scene in Houston between 1972 an 1985.
