“Celebrate a birthday under the stars!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2015 NEW

My daughter scheduled a planetarium show to celebrate her husband's birthday. They have a private room where we enjoyed pizza and snacks after the show.
Show was great! Fun and educational.

“Worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2014

A hidden treasure in Ocean County. Be selective in the program you attend. Went to two, one was excellent, the second was okay.

“Laser Holiday Show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

My husband and I took our 4-yr old nephew to the Laser Holiday show at the Planetarium last night. He had such a great time and as soon as the show was over, he jumped from his seat and exclaimed "That was AWESOME!". He was singing along to the songs that he knew and pointed out the designs he recognized (Rudolph, Santa, etc).

We are very fortunate to have one of the few Planetariums, in the state, so close to home and its a fun and educational night out for all ages. Support your local attractions!!

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.
