We have been frequenting the planetarium since I was a small child. The wonders of the stars, broadcast in a cool, dark room. Come to campus, get ice cream, see the stars!! Go green!!

This is a great attraction to visit. The presentions are always informative! The black light gallery ready for viewing while waiting to enter the seating area is also intriguing.

I've looking forward to taking the kids to the planetarium and flying through the start sky and Milky Way. That must be too old school because after a brief token find the North Star and such we were whisked on a psychedelic tumble of loopy loops that made you feel like you were falling and my kids aged 4 and...

Came with a group of 5 adults. Small atrium with some interesting things to look at before the show. The show was entertaining and great value for $4 per person. Parking is free. Highly recommend.

We have been to the Planetarium on several occasions when family is visiting. Kids and adults alike love it. The first time we went it was difficult to find - we were looking for a huge telescope-holding building on campus, but the Planetarium does not have that huge of a profile. There are plenty of exhibits in the lobby to... More

My Grandsons loved it! I did too! Fun place to go any time of year, especially in the Winter, when there are fewer things to do. Plus- it is educational.

I get to MSU campus a few times a year and always make a point to stop by Abrams at least one of these times. It is a nice show, and location on the beautiful campus, with plenty of parking near by. the prices are very reasonable. The shows are geared towards a little older crowd. (High School, College, Adults)... More
