If you love planetariums, you'll love this place. Tons of fun exhibits that easily kept my girlfriend and I entertained. The Gift Shop sells things at a reasonable price.

We really enjoyed the engaging shop with scientific trinkets, gadgets and mechanisms, etc. We could spend an afternoon just browsing and spending my paycheck in the store. Great for gifts for self and loved ones. We also loved the displays throughout the Clark Planetarium. The star/constellation shows are superb, too. All in all we'd give the Clark Planetarium A++ rating.... More

I love this place. Although we have only been to see the shows here a couple of times, they are very worth it! If I lived closer, it would be a weekly thing for us, maybe monthly. There is a ton to do for free here, too. You can take pictures of your kids on Mars and the Moon! How... More

We've been to the Planetarium a few times to see shows, like the members' preview of To Space and Back, which we enjoyed the evening so much. Brandon the MC before the dome show was excellent. They've added some more exhibits since they reopened in October. My teenagers enjoyed the build-a-rocket exhibit, challenging my one son who's a Kerbal Space... More

We've been here a few times. They have an IMAX always showing cool movies. Lots of spots for kids to run around, learn, and have a great time. Hands on!

A group of three adults, we had a lot of fun visiting the planetarium. There are many free small very interesting interactive exhibits that attracted us and were enjoyed by all. It was a fine mix of children, teens, and adults exploring the interactive offerings. We did visit the domed theater for exploration of black holes. We all loved the... More

If you love IMAX "earth" movies, you will like this place. I appreciate that a "free" museum needs to generate revenue to keep the doors open and does so here with the movie tickets it sells. However, we found the actual exhibits a little lacking. Many were not working. Others seemed tired and need of refreshing. However, I would say... More

Our group included two families with children ranging in age from 2 years-old to 15 years-old. There were a lot of fun interactive things to do and all ages enjoyed them. We also did the planetary show in the dome and it was neat! The guy narrating was funny, informative and had an awesome voice for narrating! I would definitely... More

We've enjoyed each of our visits. Even though there are only a few exhibits it ends up being just about the right size for a fun hour-long outing with younger kids.

Hi there braybrigade and thank you for your review. We are glad that you had an excellent time at the Planetarium though I'm sorry you were only able to spend an hour and only see a handful of our three levels of exhibits. We hope that you'll be able to come again another time and experience all of our exhibits! More
