“The University of Texas at Arlington Planetarium”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you are looking for interesting things to do in Arlington and have run out of stadium tours try something a little different. The planetarium is run by the college and not only does shows but an instructor speaks to the audience and gives you a little learning along with the show. There is also a roller coaster simulation they do that is way cool. Great for kids.

“Grandparents and Children Enjoyed It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The planetarium is a very worthwhile and enjoyable excursion. It is well organized and easily understandable. You are provided with a wealth of information, but in an easily digestible manner. The light show is worth seeing.

“Don't waste your time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

If you are planning to go to the Planetarium @ UTA, make other plans. The seats are very uncomfortable and I hurt for a couple of days after going. You have to twist and turn all around to see what is being presented. The speaker does not repeat audience questions asked so you have no clue what he is answering.The film we saw was highly disappointing as it was more of a drawing rather than real photography. In today's age of technology, that is indeed sad. The parking is expenses and I, for one, will not be returning.
