This planetarium has a terrible focal length telescope. If people are talking about the movies being great, sure. It beats your house. This "University" doesn't even have the decent budget to place on sciences. The telescopes they have are if I am not mistaken second hand. This University and its studies are a joke.

This is one of the most interesting places in Laredo, Texas. They are film nights like The Egyptian pyramids, Zula Patrol: Down to Earth, Lamps of Atlantis, and Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon".

Older kids (school aged) will really enjoy the experience and learn from it. It is too much for many children under 5.

The facility offers shows for the entire family and boasts one of only seven Digistar-3 systems in the nation. This high-tech equipment allows for the projection of incredible images on the planetarium dome. Shows range... More
