The Longway Planetarium is like an oasis in the desert. They are very knowledgeable and have excellent shows.

We took our daughter here on a Sunday and it was very fun and educational. We purchased the family pass for year round access and we will definitely be coming back again. There are several shows available on the weekend and we went to the last show. Wish we would have went to the first show and stayed all day... More

I attended a great laser show featuring Motown Music. It was fantastic. The abstract art from the laers alternated neyween whimsical to existential. Definitely a must.

Planetarium is this large bubble in the mist of the flint cultural center, sits next to the play theater and the flint institute of arts, across from whiting, flint institute of music and Sloan museum. All great places to visit. Planetarium offers a view of the night sky, some shows are educational some set to music. Definitely worth a visit.... More

Took the family to the show on the constellations. They had a great time and so did my wife and I. Prices were very reasonable. The gentleman doing the show was available for questions. He was very approachable and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the Planetarium. Great fun for the whole family.

The Planetarium is great family outings or if you want to just be by yourself. You could find out when the what the night sky has too offer, and all the different stars.

Great show for adults and kids. Show lasts for about an hour inside a large auditorium. Gift shop has anything that you could need to view the stars. Pay one price for multiple venues, including the Sloan Museum and Buick Gallery

We saw a great presentation in the planetarium with a live astronomer. It was great to see the show and learn about the solar system and the earth. I would recommend it for kids and adults alike.
