A group of 10 of us get together regularly from Church and in late January we all attended the OMNIMAX showing of Jerusalem. Although we all agreed the movie's content was very good in showing the antiquity of this city, it's complexity and it's diverse cultural makeup several of us with some degree of motion sickness left feeling a bit...

Omnimax is a great visual experience -- better for shorter cinematic offerings, as the seats aren't too comfortable for anything longer. It's big, it's bold, it's an experience!

We loved the Planetarium\omni max/science center! In my oppinion this is way better than the City Museum ( too crowded, not a lot of parking ect). We really enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit, the fossil exploration, energy center, and tornado tunnel. The center is really large, great for kids, wheels chairs ect. Even with large crowds inside it was not crowded.... More

Adults will learn something as well, of course, but the Omnimax films are always visually stunning! The Planetarium star shows are fascinating, and everyone will learn about life in space, the challenges of getting there, etc.

We don't go to many movies anymore but enjoy going to the Omnimax at The Planetarium in Forest Park. This week we saw Jerusalem and enjoyed it very much. We received a $1.00 AAA discount on the $9.00 admission. I want to return soon to see Humpback Whales. It also would be fun to bring our granddaughter to a movie... More

We visit the Science Center but have not been to the planetarium in awhile. The grand kids wanted something else to do and we were near the north side entrance so we popped in. The price was great but we were very disappointed in the show. Before buying tickets I asked the girl at the booth if the show would... More

Been there many times, first with my children, now with the grand children. Always changes with new exhibits and different Omnimax shows. Crowded on the weekends or when schools bring in bus loads of visiting students. One of Saint Louis best locations to visit.

The technology for the D-Day I-Max borders on incredible. The combination of enhanced archival film combined with animation gives you the not comfortable being there. I served in the 1st Inf Div at the tail end of the German occupation with soldiers who were in the D--Day Invasion who chose to stay in the service. They did not talk much... More
