Very educational, fun

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!

This place is okay for a small town that doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment. It's pretty small but, the shows are very well done and the staff is pretty friendly.

Excellent shows for kids and a fun place to go. Glad it finally opened again after being closed so long. A must see.

This is a very good place to take children or yourself for well done shows about the universe. I have also been here for a radio play which was very good.

The Planetarium is always fun to visit a few times a year. Educational and always something new. The staff is always friendly and the price is about the same as a movie. I would recommend this for children and kids birthday parties.

A great place for taking your children if they're interested in stars and skies. The theater is dome-shaped, making the show even more interesting. The price was a little bit high imo thought.

I've been to the planetarium a couple of times, and have seen live "in the wings" style theater (it was fine, in their defense it's a pretty small theater company). I have a pre-teen I've taken there. I've also watched a film there... despite the very uncomfortable seating I was bored enough to fall asleep.

My family and I visited the Casper Planetarium on a Friday, we saw the 11 Night Sky show. The show was fun and informational. We learned about the night sky, constellations, planets and stars. This would be a wonderful show for Kindergarten through third grade students, but my preteen and teenager enjoyed it as well. The planetarium has some interesting... More

I've taken groups of kids as well as my neighbors and they have all enjoyed it! All the kids talked about it for hours afterwards! Also, I've got to the laser light shows, very fun!

This was a fun place to take my 3 year old daughter. We went to the Sesame Street showing. She really enjoyed herself :-)
