A little off the beaten path but very much worth it, especially if you have kids. It is owned by the school district, of all things, and is one of only three planetariums in the entire state! Admission is very reasonable, and the shows are...More

If you have extra time and kids who are interested in science and astronomy it's worth a visit. The best part was not the show they had running, but the exhibits you can visit before the show starts. It's small, so make sure if you...More

I enjoy going to the shows here to learn more about our universe. The seating allows a great view of the dome, and there are interactive exhibits all around the lobby.

The hallways were filled with some interesting objects, experiments, and things to do and see. The most enjoyable was the presentation about a solar eclipse. Might have to stop back in Casper in August to see a total eclipse.

Love our Planetarium!!!Been going to it for years and never tire of it. They have great shows and are very informative. If you haven't been here in a while, head back for a great time.

Although there were only 5 other guests at the planetarium when we went, I thought it was excellent. The kid putting on the presentation did a wonderful job, very interesting!
