“Window to the stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Fantastic addition to Brisbane. Have taken many primary school excursions there over the years. Who knows how many budding astronomers it has inspired? The seats are comfortable and the programmes well suited to all ages. Some shows are aimed at children other at all ages. Great displays there too, including a moon rock.

“Hidden Stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

The planetarium is a cheap & easy Sat or Sun thing to do here in Brisbane - they have some awesome shows on, all of which are narrated by some of the biggest stars in Hollywood ~

All shows start out with a brief showing of the Brisbane skyline and the stars that we currently see - depending on the time of year -

They have a little store as well, which you can buy all manner of fun, nerdy, science toys from -

Definitely a great place to take kids, as they have shows just for them, but otherwise stick to friends & family, or even head in yourself, the shows are so amazing, you will forget that you even came with someone!

“'Tycho to the Moon' a dud”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

We took our 7 year old to the Brisbane Planatariums 'Tycho to the Moon', a show for kids in their sky dome. Don't waste your money. Very poor educational content. The majority of kids were bored within 5 minutes of the show starting. The dog flys to the moon in a kennel - that's about it. Very disappointing. Avoid.
