My friend and I went to a Saturday Night Live show for something different to do. It was an excellent night out. Reasonably priced with ample parking. I DO recommend booking as we were chastised for not doing so.

The Planetarium is an efficient little spot, they pack a great deal of displays in information signage in a small area. The actual Planetarium is quiet and dark with the presentations given in such a soothing voice it may be difficult to stay awake but it's very interesting and well put-together.

Very educational. Good to learn about the universe, night sky and history of astronomy. Plenty of parking.

We went in the morning to the planetarium hoping to watch something in the auditorium. We were very disappointed to learn that all the morning shows are for children and the adult ones are all in the afternoon. Having got there at 10am when it opens and the first adult show not until 1pm we looked around the small exhibition... More

I was quite looking forward to visiting but it was disappointing. It is very small, the displays are poor and the accompanying information is placed at a height which is obstructed by the angle in the display case for any average height adult. The building could do with some clear 'direction' as people tend to congregate right at the entry... More

We especially wanted to see one of the shows and so telephoned ahead to be sure of a place. It would be great if they could permit booking online (the lack of this service was surprising), but the staff were very friendly and helpful. The displays are modest but well done.

Great little presentation. Not overly long, so no one should lose interest or get bored. We saw cosmic collisions, narrated by Robert Redfed. It was priced about right and would definitely recommend.

With the Grandparents visiting from out of town we decided to do something different this Saturday night and made the trip to the planetarium for their 'Saturday night Live' presentation in the skydome. With a mixed group of 7 including kids 9,11&13 and adults including a scifi nut and a national geo subscriber + 2 (regular) women lol we defended... More

Great place with something for everyone, there is a free entry section or you can book a show, a big choice for kids shows and interesting one for older people. Really well done and interesting.
