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

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.
