We recently visited the newly-redone Longway Planetarium and enjoyed it thoroughly. They have fabulous shows and a super comfortable auditorium in which to watch them. There is a great play area for kids with challenging and creative materials for their use.

Since they have remodeled, the image is really amazing! We saw the film Space and Back. It was great and educational. This would be a great thing to do with kids and teens. The whole experience took about an hour.

Come on in and enjoy the newly renovated Longway Planetarium. The cost, when combined with the Sloan Museum, is $14 for an adult. If you haven't been since it's been renovated, do yourself a favor and go see a show. Don't short change yourself, get there early to see all the lobby exhibits. Take time to mull over what you...

The Longway Planetarium closed this winter to remodel the dome and install a completely new projection system. This last weekend the L.P. re-opened with much fanfare and the new installation is a huge success. The new project cost 1.8 million dollars and you can see what that kind of money can buy. The new dome interior is slightly smaller than... More
