This place is in the middle of campus and it is a pain to find parking. The roads leading up to it are all blocked and the parking is closed. If you want to go here try next year.

My granddaughter and I went to see the show “We Are Astronomers” at the UTA Planetarium. My admission was $6 and my granddaughter’s admission was $4. This is the best planetarium that I have visited. I would like to return to see some of the other shows that are offered. There is no photography allowed of any of the material... More

My friends and I visited the planetarium as a class grade for college. The shows are absolutely spectacular! It feels like you're really there in space. I seen the space roller coaster ride and Pink Floyd light show. I hate that I missed the real light show, but I'm happy I got to see it. The tickets were cheap and... More

Its a beautiful building in the heart of UT-Arlington. You will be very impressed with the show and the staff will also be very kind. The show is not very expensive and the kids and adults alike will learn and enjoy their time here. give it a try,

This is a small planetarium on the campus. I saw the Pink Floyd show which was very good. Before the show, they had some short films from NASA, which I found very interesting. Most people were too busy on their cell phones, I would guess because this wasn't the show they came to see, but it was extremely informative and... More

We went to a show with our scuba diving group and had a blast. My grandsons loved the show and they were only 4 and 5 years old. This is definitely a hidden gem!

This is a very nice planetarium. Parking can be difficult if you go when school is in session. The shows are typically very good. I have seen a couple that I really didn't care for, such as Pink Floyd. It is also an inexpensive and fun group activity.

A good friend of mine and an outstanding amateur astronomer (my mentor!) and I decided to go over to the planetarium. The show was great -- a good reminder that working with the public to excite them about astronomy requires not only being knowledgeable as a scientist, but being a gifted speaker. We had a lot of fun and if... More
