I feel lucky to have a place like the Clark Planetarium in my city. It's a place to gather my family and extended family that is not only entertaining but educational. They do a great job there.

Hi there Korinne N! Thanks for your great review of Clark Planetarium. We love being a gathering place for families, and we can't wait to become an even more awe-inspiring and fun place to hang out when our renovations are complete in October 2016! More

An after holiday trip with two young children was a pleasant affair. Ages of children are 3 and 18 months so many of the activities were beyond their understanding, skills,and size. The gift shop was the favored attraction. I think children ages 5 to 12 would be more engaged and interested in the exhibits and activities. I have been before... More

Buy the membership if you think you MIGHT possibly go more than once in a year. It includes free or reduced entry into all the movies and presentations, which makes for a nice day when the weather's not so nice. And this is Salt Lake City. We get weather here. They were just starting the renovations when I was last... More

Hi there Michael G., thanks for your review! Memberships to Clark Planetarium = free entry into all IMAX presentations, all Dome theatre presentations, and our Night Vision and Gateway to the Stars programs. They also include special screenings of films and first dibs on free tickets to public programs that always sell-out, like our live presentations with the Salt City... More

I LOVE to go to the Clark Planetarium it is an amazing place. When you enter you are greeted by the enormous globe showing you about winds, temperatures and other interesting things that happen on our planet. The science exhibit dedicated to space and physics is really interesting. One of my favorite thing is the depiction of the sun climbing... More

I've been to the Planetarium quite a few times. They always have interesting shows. One thing people forget is that there are quite a few displays that are FREE. They also have a really nice, unique gift shop.

Thank your for your review! I'm glad that you take advantage of all the planetarium has to offer and hope that you'll be able to join us lots of of times over the next few months for free presentations by current NASA scientists, special guests during Night Vision, and multiple new shows, all in celebration of our being in SLC...

We had a good time at the theaters. The exhibit area is fairly small and some of the exhibits aren't in great condition. But, we love science and it is worthwhile and fun. I would plan on about an hour for the exhibits plus any additional time for the theaters.

Hi there, thanks for your review! I'm glad that you had a good time at the planetarium. You'll probably be excited to hear that we received a bond in 2015 for a full renovation of our exhibits; we will complete the renovation in October 2016. I hope you'll have the opportunity to visit us again. More

We watched the IMAX about coral reefs - very thought provoking. The theater seemed more like a really big screen rather than some of the IMAX theaters that I have been to in the past, but it was still really good. We also watched the show in the dome that they have the first Saturday of every month. Loved exploring... More
