We saw Hubble 3D, it was very interesting and beautifully done. The exhibits were all very interesting. I would recommend visiting the Planetarium to my family and friends and will most definitely return.

The admission to the Planetarium is free which is nice. Sure, it is not as big as you are probably used to, but they have several exhibits and a lot of hands on-acitivities for children. Our kids, 7 + 3, were not bored for one minute. The price for the IMAX movie is $7 which is reasonable, we found. We... More

Staff are very helpful.. store downstairs where telescopes, books gift items can be purchased. Upstairs, IMAX theater where they show great documentaries... really life like. Various displays for hands on experience. Kids love it. Family oriented. Definitely recommend for learning experience.

We had the Salt Lake pass and glad we did or we may have missed this. Came for the LEMUR movie which was quite good. Then looked around and REALLY did enjoy the exhibits. Look pictures of me and my husband on Mars and on the Moon. Learned about the planets upstairs with some really hard questions. Liked the faux... More

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
