Great variety of shows

We've attended the Halloween and Christmas laser shows. Very cool. The kids have attended shows through class field trips too.

Is only open sporadically now. This is not the place it was! We used to come here whenever we came to Bay City. Now it is rarely open, limited shows, and not really attractive anymore. Too bad, it used to be so great.

The seating holds about 100 guests. The seats are fabulous with lots of leg room. The show is outstanding. Available for private parties.

This was the coolest place I've ever been for a wedding. Close to the DoubleTree Hotel. Wheelchair accessible. Easy to get around in. The stars, fireworks, and graphics were an excellent touch to the wedding ceremony. The wedding party walked in on each side of the planetarium joining in the front of the chairs. Taking pictures out in the lobby... More

A great venue in the middle of the city. Comfortable and clean, it offers great entertainment suited to your group. 360 screen puts you right in the show! Beware those that have motion issues...

The Delta College Planetarium is really great! I've seen a number of different educational films there, and have been impressed with the technology. Young children will especially enjoy it, as it is often very interactive.

We visited during the Tall Ships Festival. We saw the Mysteries of the Great Lakes movie. We were both offended that the show was promoting a stance casting a lot of blame that people are destroying the great lakes and trying to put forward a "climate change" agenda. I would never take a child to a show there based on... More

Went to the planetarium for a show. It was very interesting. They offer different shows so you could go back multiple times. I feel like they could advertise a little more I feel like I have to search for information. I think I would go more if I was reminded of the planetarium somehow.
