My husband and I went here while in SLC, it was pouring rain outside and needed an indoor activity. This place is STUNNING. Almost all of the exhibits are interactive, and very educational. The best part of the planetarium is that there is not an entrance free. We saw one of the films in the theater and it was equally... More

This location has a bunch of fun hand on tools for kids or adults. The shows are amazing especially the light shows. I highly recommend going but not getting a season pass as a family. We ended up only going about 4 times total in a year so I wouldn't recommend the pass but for sure a night out on... More

Came here on a date with the hubby. Man was it a blast. Free to enter and walk through the exhibits. Which were awesome. Very entertaining. We bought the year pass which was $49 for two. We watched 3 movies and ate free popcorn. The lemur movie was adorable. Great place to excape the cold weather. Can't wait to go... More

The Clark Planetarium is a first rate place to spend a good chunk of your day. Lotsa of excellent shows and first rate exhibits. Good prices on scopes.

Wow, what an experience! We took our family of 5, not really knowing what to expect. It was free (but you do have to pay for the movies), so I was expecting a small place you could walk through in 30-40 minutes. We stayed there several hours looking at all the exhibits. Our kids (from 14-6) all loved it. Mom... More

This was a lot of fun and we were here for a long time. We did an Imax movie, though my kids were happy just doing the exhibits. There are bunch of hands on exhibits that are engaging. I have older and younger children. The older kids were fine walking around on their own and didn't beg to leave. If... More

We walked here from Temple Square on the way back to our hotel. Good visit. Seems to be more applicable to visitors with children. Interesting exhibits for the children. Otherwise it is basically a movie theater providing planetarium exhibits, movies, IMAX, and other features; each for a separate fee. How many "movies" can you watch in a row? Area is... More

This was our first visit to the Clark Planetarium. We drove and parked in the underground parking garage. If you buy something in the gift shop you get a $2 credit to the garage. We used our Salt Lake Connect Pass which I very much recommend especially if you can get it w/ groupon or the like. We went on... More

There is so much information and lots to learn. This is a must visit. Parking can be hard to find. Its in the downtown park of the city.

I must admit my visit to the Clark Planetarium left me nostalgic for the Hansen Planetarium, the former planetarium of SLC. The original planetarium had a much larger museum with a greater variety of space memorabilia however the new planetarium has several star theaters as well as at least one imax. The museum is free and the star shows are... More
