“Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I always have found the planetarium fascinating. I like the laser shows that are put on periodically. The Christmas program is one of my favorites!

“Educational & Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The planetarium is an educational and fun trip for the kids. We saw the Cosmic Colors show and they liked it. It was for ages 10 and over but they were a little younger. I thought it was a little expensive ($10 adults / $7 kids) for a 1-hour show but it's something different to do in the area.

“Great to have something like this local, kids loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

The kids and I have been to about three instructional shows and loved all of them. There are also other things to here on other special events. Wish this was closer because the college has other awesome programs for the kids over the summer. Definitely worth seeing. Not very crowded hope more decide to make this a visit instead of the normal Jersey Shore.
