We haven't been to the Planetarium since our class in 1984. It brought back a lot of memories. The staff did a wonderful job. Highly recommend. We won't wait so long to go back

Free Programs!
Dec 2016 • Family
There is never a bad seat in this house. Planetarium is a great part of Youngstown State University and offers year round free programs lead by Universtiy staff. We have never been disappointed in a show.

Halloween Nightlights show - good for something different and it's free!
Oct 2015
We went on Halloween night w/ our 8 y/o son - it was surprisingly not crowded. The host and his assistant were very nice and the show was interesting. The music/ sound isn't the best - not like a concert quality sound. A few dark moments for my family but, overall a nice show. We parked right on the street and it's a short walk up the hill.

We love the planetarium. It is a fun, free and educational time for everyone. My kids age 12,10 and 8 all love going to see the stars.

Such a great resource! Staff is very knowledgeable. Shows are always free - get there about 10 minutes early because the doors close at showtime. Public shows each Fri/Sat. We've been there for weekly shows as well as the Laser show they hold yearly.

Science Lover's Free Dream Attraction
Dec 2013 • Family
During the school year, the Planetarium puts on free shows for the public, usually on Friday and Saturday nights. You have to arrive on time as they lock the doors when the show is scheduled to start. The shows are really very good, and the planetarium at YSU is one of the only in NE Ohio. It has also been recently updated with new seats and a new star projector. If you decide to attend YSU, if you take Astronomy 1504 or the lab, you get to use the planetarium for some of your classes, which is really pretty neat.
