My husband and I took our 4-yr old nephew to the Laser Holiday show at the Planetarium last night. He had such a great time and as soon as the show was over, he jumped from his seat and exclaimed "That was AWESOME!". He was singing along to the songs that he knew and pointed out the designs he recognized... More

I always have found the planetarium fascinating. I like the laser shows that are put on periodically. The Christmas program is one of my favorites!

The planetarium is an educational and fun trip for the kids. We saw the Cosmic Colors show and they liked it. It was for ages 10 and over but they were a little younger. I thought it was a little expensive ($10 adults / $7 kids) for a 1-hour show but it's something different to do in the area.

The kids and I have been to about three instructional shows and loved all of them. There are also other things to here on other special events. Wish this was closer because the college has other awesome programs for the kids over the summer. Definitely worth seeing. Not very crowded hope more decide to make this a visit instead of... More

I haven't been to Novins since the entire Fine Arts Bldg. was redesigned so I am looking forward to it. It has always been a terrific little planetarium for adults and kids.

Rogert J. Novins Planetarium is located on the campus of Ocean County College at College Drive off Route 549/Hooper Ave. in Toms River, just south of the Brick Township line and north of the Ocean County Mall. This planetarium is a hidden gem. Newly renovated, it's about the same size as the State of NJ planetarium in Trenton. For the... More

Wonderful experience for kids and adults. Shows change seasonally and offer different views of stars and planets for each particular season in Ocean County. There are shows for the general audience and others specifically created for children. Read about show descriptions and schedule on the website: http://www.ocean.edu/campus/planetarium/NovinsGeneralInfo.htm. All on one floor -- handicapped accessible. Small gift shop with many nominally... More
