The Planetarium is a great place to spend an afternoon with children. The large screen movies and the domed theater are a special treat to watch educational movies about the ocean, solar system or wildlife. All around each floor are hands on items for children (and adults) to experience and learn from. Never get tired of visiting the Clark Planetarium.

Fun place to spend time with friends and family. They always have interesting shows going on and the planetarium itself has a bunch of fun games and things to see for free.

I took my grandsons here when we had some time to spend in downtown SLC. There were some interesting features, mostly appealing for younger children, but the obvious intent was to have visitors buy IMAX tickets. We choose not to do so. My grandsons said that they probably wouldn't choose to visit here again.

We arrived at the planetarium right at opening time. We got parking in the parking garage right next to it, so we could step right into the planetarium. (The parking is validated, but in this case, it only means you get a discount on parking--it is not free. However, it was reasonable--we paid around $4 for about 4+ hours of... More

We only came for the IMAX, so can't really comment on the rest of what's there. Wish we had more time and the patience of someone in our group, but we were on the move. We saw the Humpback Whales movie which was decent. Better than other nature IMAX movies we've seen. I'd say the biggest hit for the planetarium... More

This place is on the rail line so really accessible. The planetarium and science exhibits are high quality, more than I admittedly expected for a city this size. Have dinner nearby and spend an hour or two with your kid here for a nice evening.

Very enjoyable and while mainly targeting children with hands on displays even adults will find it a pleasant time. Also has movie theaters and the ever present gift shop.

Kids and adults enjoyed the exhibits and hands on whimsical displays. We were there too late for any show but still had a good time for 2 hours. It's so close to the Children's museum and we went after the museum is closed. The best of all, it's free to get in.

Great displays and presentations. Fun for young and old. Arrive early for star shows as they sale out quickly. Seats are comfortable and the access is great for healthy and handicapped (me). Underground parking with validations available. Gift and product shop is crowded and the pricing is WAY TO HIGH. Enjoy!
