The planetarium does get corwded at times, but their shows are definitely worth watching. The Dome has shows for any age, and light shows at night. We watched the Perfect Little Planet, and it kept the kids entertained the entire time. The introduction into what is happening in the current night sky before the show was a nice touch. Other...

Parking in the parking garage was very convenient. Free to come in and look around at all of the displays. We watched Island of the Lemurs in 3D. Family of 4 tickets were only $7 each. Snack bar was also reasonable, cheaper than your average theatre. Movie was 40 min. long which was perfect. Imax effect in 3D is cool.... More

Since we had some free time one evening in SLC, we stopped by Clark Planetarium. Its one of the few attractions that was open until 10pm (most things close by 6pm at the latest). We booked a 7pm IMAX movie. Since there was a little time before the movie, we wandered through the planetarium. It is basically for children. As... More

A small museum, but full of educational activities that are interactive. Walk on Mars and the moon, and create your own tornado are some of the especially unique experiences. An IMAX theater with several different shows and star programs is a part of the experience. Fun for elementary aged and above. This is a favorite destination for my friends who... More

its very small with mostly shows that cost a lot more than a standard ticket. this place is really only for children, it would not take more than a couple of hours to see the whole place.

I had chaperoned my kids here at field trips, and once I found out about the $99 annual pass for a family (that means all IMAX Films are free, free popcorn 1x a day and free Hansen Dome passes too). It's well worth going once or twice a month to check out the entertaining and educational films. The 3D is... More

While searching for activities to do with the kids during a cold winter day, we decided to take a trip over to the planetarium. This was my first experience with the kids. When you enter the building, the lobby area has all sorts of "free" activities. From a cloud machine to a tornado maker to all sorts of other fun... More

Did not have time to see the show this time but found the foyer display area interesting to wonder around. Very good Jupiter display on the sphere.

My kids and I loved the exhibits at Clark's planetarium. Definitely worth the price (free). I would have loved to stay for an imax movie but we were short on time.

We played with all the informative things they had on the first level, then went to the 3rd level to see the exhibit starting the balls rolling down thru a lot of wire tracks then coming back to the top. Then we went down to the 2nd floor and went into the 3D show about the Dragons. Surprise ending!! Seats... More
