Although the planetarium is under construction I went to catch a show at the imax theater. It offered a nice break from the sun and heat outside. Allow yourself about an hour to get there, buy your ticket, and wait for the theater to open. Shows were running about 45 minutes long. I'm sure when their renovations are done this... More

I took my 14, 15 and 19 year old sons. They loved it. The light show set to music was great! Will definitely go again.

We saw a great show. The hostess was very knowledgable and presented well. The display areas outside the actual planetarium were under construction, so the displays were very limited. It was still worth the trip.

This planetarium is perfect for curious minds. Grab a snack at the concessions and catch a science related Imax or cosmic laser show in the awesome dome. Or, check out the free interactive activities for all ages. You can even walk on the moon or Mars! (It's under construction at the moment) Watch in awe at the three story audio-kinectic... More

The gift shop is almost as most fun as the 3D screen. They always have wonderful movies and part of the Planetarium is free.

The planetarium is not to big. Currently under construction. What is left are two cinemas and a few arcade like exhibitions. You only pay for the cinema. We saw two shows. If the time schedule of the shows had been more close together we might have seen more. Shows were good (ultimate universe and national parks). I sincerely doubt however... More

Hi there rometrips. Thank you for your review of the Clark Planetarium. I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your experience. You are correct that we are currently under construction. I was a bit surprised to hear that you felt there was a significant amount of time between shows; our IMAX shows are approximately 40-45 minutes in length... More

I guess they are doing some remodeling. There was only about 5 stations open to play with. Only the gift shop on the first floor, The IMAX theatre on the 2nd floor and the Planetarium on the 3rd. Construction was going on all over the place and people were just standing around with nothing to do. The only thing you... More

Hi there mcihawth and thank you for your review. You are correct that we are undergoing extensive remodeling. Most facilities like ours completely close to the public for a year or more to do a full renovation of all of their exhibits galleries and go one space at a time. To best serve our guests, we are furiously working over... More

I am a big planetarium fan. I try to visit every one that I can. The Hayden/Rose planetarium in New York is my "home planetarium". The shows were interesting and very unique and informative. The announcers were excellent-even when I kidded our announcer regarding his comment that you cannot star gaze from New Jersey-you can we actually get a great... More

Very small, and most of the place is under construction/renovation. I went through it in about 30 minutes. There were a few interactive stations that's a little bit like a video game with an astronomy theme -- probably will be fun for younger visitors. It's nice that it doesn't charge an admission. It's a good place to stop by if... More

Hi there mleng, thanks for your review. You're right that we are under renovation so it's pretty quick to see what is still available right now in the exhibits galleries. We decided to do it all at once to make it a quicker process and we are making it happen pretty fast. Most renovations like ours take a year with... More
