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

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

Clark Planetarium still remains an excellent option for kids. Their shows in the Dome, as well as their IMAX shows are well worth watching. They continue getting new exhibits as well, which keeps the kids entertained. I wouldn't say this is an all day idea, but it is good to bring kids to for a few hours.

I took my 8 and 11 year daughters here on a saturday and we had a great time. Entry to the planetarium is free and there are interactive booths the kids can play around with for free. The two reasons we came here were for the IMAX and a show in the Hansen Dome. Both theaters charge money for the... More

This was my first time to visit this attraction and we had a blast! Loved the Madagascar movie on Lemurs plus I was super excited to visit the gift shop and look at many of the exhibits. We will definitely be back in the future!
