Took my three youngest grandchildren aged seven, five and three to see Peter and the Wolf. They were attentive and fascinated by the story and laser show. Just the right length to keep their attention.

This is a great place for the kids. The novelty of the huge visual is enough to keep their attention. They actually learn things, too! Staff is nice but the facility needs updating. Good place to take a classroom or the family.

We saw The Great Space Chase on the big screen. It was a fun show and all attending really liked it. The surrounding area driving to the Planetarium was very clean and seemed safe unlike other parts of Flint that we drove through.

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
