“This was a wasted trip!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We showed up for a guided show just before showtime and were told by the rude person at the desk he had already shut the doors and we were just out of luck. Shame on you!!

“Go there !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is on a college campus. They have great little shows, they have nice people and some nights they take out the telescopes and you can look at the stars or moon yourself. It is never crowded and it is a fun time.

“Fun for Free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I love this Planetarium! The telescopes are set up a couple of nights a week. Students explain what you are looking at and answer any questions. the computers are available to look up more sights and find interesting facts. My kids love coming here.

“Unlocking the Mystery of the Sky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

Buehler Planetarium uses modern digital projection to replicate the sky in different seasons and from different aspects. I came with a group of first grade students, the staff was well equipped to interpret the program to the children. This is a wonderful, educational venue. For the whole family. I highly recommend the Buehler Planetarium.

“Free star gazing from Giant Telescopes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

On Wednesday afternoons you can watch the solar flares coming off of the sun from the giant telescopes and in the evenings on the weekends you can see various stars, constellations and even Saturn with its rings from a large robotic telescope. All for free of course.
