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.

We love to come here on Friday nights. It starts the weekend on a relaxing note. Comfy seats and casual atmosphere. Plus we learn something too. Love the show after the show.

Mellow out and ease into the stars...and moons...with this understated, under-rated, silver-plated value on the MSU campus. The heavens tell a story about creation, and the myths and histories of man are also told in their imaginative naming of constellations. The people here really like to tell the story. It's a mellow experience, so if you have to check your... More

Nice little planetarium with a theater similar in size to most others. Movie that was played was from the early 90s when Pluto was still a planet. Host gave a nice after-show seminar about constellations, how to find them in the night sky, and their associated historical myths.

This is a good way to spend a cold friday's night. It's very interesting to learn about the stars. If you already know a lot, you will still enjoy it. The guy who finishes the show is kind of funny.

The title says it all. How many people pass by this curious little building with the dome without ever going inside? The star shows are very inexpensive ($3.00 for adults, $2.00 for kids 12 and under, $2.50 for students and seniors); it's one of the cheapest dates on campus! After the programmed show, the astronomer on duty gives a tour... More
