I took my 8 and 11 year daughters here on a saturday and we had a great time. Entry to the planetarium is free and there are interactive booths the kids can play around with for free. The two reasons we came here were for the IMAX and a show in the Hansen Dome. Both theaters charge money for the... More

This was my first time to visit this attraction and we had a blast! Loved the Madagascar movie on Lemurs plus I was super excited to visit the gift shop and look at many of the exhibits. We will definitely be back in the future!

We bought the City Pass where you can visit several places with 1 ticket - saves a good bit of money! Worth the investment. Although we didn't see any of the show, the exhibits themselves were very interesting. We ourselves.

Clark Planetarium has a little bit of something for all ages. My boys really had fun trying out of the interactive exhibits. They also loved being able to take pictures on backdrops made to look very realistic of some of the other planets. We haven't experienced a movie yet, but one of the next trips we will definitely do so.

...we had not visited the planetarium since it was moved to its current location at the gateway!...the reason for this visit was to see the showing of the National Geographic feature, JERUSALEM. This 40 minute 3D visit was fantastic...and the facility was too...interesting exhibits, snacks, and a wonderful gift shop. The location is great at the Gateway Shopping Center with... More

I lived in Salt Lake City for 35 years and took my kids here many times. It is an awesome place to visit, and at the nice outdoor Mall, the Gateway, where you can get the kids something nice to eat. If you go down to the water fountain and look at the 2002 Winter Olympic Volunteer Wall, you will... More

We came upon the planetarium while walking around town and it was nice. We went to an IMAX movie about pandas and it was really cute. They have a fully stocked get shop too.

From the moment I stepped inside the building I was enthralled! We walked around all of the 'hand's on' attractions and took in a show at the Hansen Dome Theater. We interacted with the theater staff prior to the show starting and was impressed by their knowledge of the subject matter! We came back later the same day to take... More

We go as frequently as possible, especially when there is a new show. Exhibits are always fun. We are members so shows are included in the membership.

Admission to the exhibits is free. While some of the exhibits are not state of the art and over the top entertaining, we enjoy the laser shows and the IMAX movies and have seen several of them (The Lemurs IMAX entertained early elementary kids, teens, and adults.) If you're in the area looking for something inexpensive, this is a good... More
