“Educational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The Morehead Planetarium, on the grounds of the University of North Carolina is a popular spot for school field trips. I am in awe of the stars. The staff members open new vistas to the young minds.

“Small and simple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Makes a perfect side trip to the beach. The museum was entertaining and educational without being so big that you felt like you lost a whole day going there. Just the right size for a break in the typical beach routine.

“interesting show”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

plantarium show was nice and interesting. The rest of the plantarium is pretty run down and old looking and there isn't much else to do around it. It's osmething different to do and it's an inexpensive way to spend an afternoon or morning.

I've visited Morehead Planetarium since I was a child. The children's shows are excellent and have seen tons of laser shows here!

This is always a good place for adults and children to go. Don't miss out on the museum too!
