“Planetarium”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

This place could be a cool thing to do if they would put a little money into the place to renovate it. It is looking worn out. It would be awesome if they would add imax. Parking is really hard to come by now that the new convention center is there.

“Needs a facelift”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

The show was educational, but technology has come a long way since this planetarium was built and it doesn't seem to have kept up with the times. The staff were friendly and accomodating.

“Movie was great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This was my first time to the Planetarium. While it seems a little dated it was still a great trip. We came to watch the Wild Ocean movie. The staff was very nice and the movie screen was cool to see.

“Fun place and educational”

I love the experience of the planetarium. It is great for a rainy afternoon when the kids want something to do!

“Don't waste your money on the sky show”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

This sky show (New Horizons about Pluto) was so outdated and boring that we fell asleep. The graphics from this film looked like they were from the 80's. The only interesting thing was the sky, and it was more of a filler than the program itself. If you are going to see something, make it one of the films.
