This beautiful spot has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. Remodeled in Fall 2016, the new exhibits offer a lot of interactive learning for people of all ages. The Hansen Dome theater offers 360 degree shows in a dome-shaped theater, with laser light shows at night on the weekends which are VERY fun! The IMAX offers several... More

I don't go often but when I do, I'm always impressed. They've got some really cool interactive exhibits and the dome theater is definitely something to experience. I recently went on a field trip with my son's kindergarten class. It was MADNESS so you definitely want to avoid field trip days (give them a call to find out) but it's... More

I enjoyed the way I was greeted, and they would answer any questions I had. As well the way they explained things about our solar system was quite interesting.

This is a place I take my high school students twice a year. They have a dome theater and an IMAX screen. The exhibits were just redone last year and they are fantastic. Exhibit show different moons in the solar system and close up information of the planets. Well worth your time.

Empty, and never crowded. Sad really, because its really pretty good! It just needs more to see and do. But the staff are really nice, the exhibits were fun and had enough appeal to keep us entertained and educated for a good half-day adventure. You can tell that they love what they do, and the shows are pretty good. Worth... More

For safety purposes and so that our staff can clean quickly, we do ask that guests exit the theatre between each show, even if they have tickets to each showing. While our shows do have costs associated with them, entry to the... More

My husband and I stumbled into the planetarium after a movie one day. Thankfully, it was late on a weekday evening and so there weren't many kids on that first visit. It's totally free to go through all 3 levels of the hands-on planetarium experience and if you're a kid-at-heart, you'll love it. We had a blast. On our second... More

Hi there DawnSerra, and thank you for your review. You're right that we do have a lot of kids in the planetarium on weekdays during the school year. But I hear you! We piloted a program last year that had adults-only parties and we'll be doing some more that this year to keep trying to build the program. Please follow... More
