“great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

we brought our teenager here...it was educational, but more for smaller kids. the planetarium is also surrounded by a park, so it's a great afternoon place to also have a picnic or go for a run.

“Cool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

It's a neat little place. And as stated in an earlier review is under funded sadly. I think it would be a much nicer much cooler place it the state cared about it. Definitely check it out if you have the time!

“A nice view from here.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This is one of the many places in Montgomery that get very little monetary funds. Consequently it's small but worth seeing. It's located in one of Montgomery's oldest parks in the middle of the city.

“a low priced activity that young and old will enjoy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

The planetarium is very nice on the inside with lots of space program memorabilia and a decent gift shop. We went to see the Christmas show (I think it was called Tis the Season), which unfortunately was more of a slide show on the history of Christmas than information about the cosmos. However, I would go back to see another show - the facilities are very nice and it is a cheap indoor activity for those cold or rainy days.
