LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. Not just for outerspace nerds. This place is awesome for everyone. It has something to do for all types. LOVE the weight machine on top floor, tells you how much you would weigh on different planets...FUN

I go here annually with my local elementary school for a field trip. It's a fun place with a lot of educational things to explore. They make learning fun at the planetarium. Entry is free, so you can go and look around at the pendulum, learn about the planets, see how much you would weigh on Mars, and so much... More

This isn't a planetarium: it's an IMAX theater and some kids presentations/exhibits. If you want a real planetarium experience, I suggest going to the BYU planetarium: they have a schedule of public presentations online.

Clark Planetarium is a great place for kids. Go when it is too hot outside during the summer or too cold outside during the winter. It has awesome 3D movies about space, nature, the ocean, dinosaurs, etc. It also has educational interactive activities that focus on science, physics and astronomy. There is an admission price for the movie. There is... More

The exhibits are fun but there aren't very many of them. It doesn't take long to look through everything. The shows are neat but rather expensive. Fun place to stop by but I wouldn't make it a main destination unless you are seeing a show.

The exhibits are great. My 5 year old daughter loves this place. It's clean and well kept. One of the only family attractions in the area that is free. They have movie theaters that charge, but it's reasonable. The food/concessions are also quite reasonable compared to movie theaters.

I was surprised it was free! Apparently you only have to pay to see the movies! For a free planetarium, it's wonderful! Interactive displays, multiple floors(although they are a bit small), as well as a HUGE gift shop! We were pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend!

Usually dread seeps in when I see a busload of kids at a place I'm visiting. But this time, they were all gathered around the globe in the center of the main floor, and we got to sit in with them and hear the presentation: all about plantets and moons. The staff presenting this information is very knowledgeable and makes... More
