Surprisingly good

I learned the most I have ever learned at any planetarium. I was completely surprised that a planetarium in this small city was so good.

Wonderful stop for families. Enjoyed great documentaries and star shows. Kids love it here. Plus they hand out sheets with what to look for in the night sky at home!

Rochester is lucky to have this gem. Not only a nice place to go to beat "cabin" fever during Rochester's 6 months of winter, but also a good place to beat the heat during Rochester's 60 days of summer (just kidding). A gift shop for the star gazer in your life and some walk thru exhibits

In conjunction with the adjoining Science Center, the planetarium is one of the jewels of Rochester. It is educational and fun, appropriate for families with kids of all ages.

I love going to the Planetarium to see different show. I can relax almost as if I am at home, as the seats tilt back. Even though I'm relaxed, I wouldn't fall asleep as the shows are entertaining and informative.

Would be great for members if they had laser light shows and movies you did not have to pay for. They have so few free things for members to see and a schedule packed with pay to see stuff the kids want to leave after five minutes of viewing. Wasted money!

Coming here brings back great memories as a child and coming here during field trips. Bringing family is even more fun. Any age and ability should love to visit here.

A throwback to the late 60's! There is nothing worth the price of admission there which is very high.. Time has passed this place by as there in NOTHING interesting there at all to see or do, a waste of time and money.
