Owner description: Mueller Planetarium, the first ever in Nebraska, is proud to bring the wonders of the universe and the natural world to everyone in a totally immersive environment! Please note a planetarium is a different kind of theater, with overhead motion & occasional loud sounds during a show. It is not recommended for guests who are sensitive to such conditions. Children must be at least 4 years old to be admitted to public shows as the environment can be overwhelming for such an age group.

“Science and fun for the whole family.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We just joined the museum because there are so many activities to enjoy there! For the price of admission to see a show in the planetarium, you get a movie as well as an astronomy lesson of tonight's sky. Loved it!

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I went to the planetarium for my son's field trip. We both enjoyed it very much. Also, they have shows set to music which is great for adults. I would recoomend Mueller to everyone.

“pretty good”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

The planetarium showed two videos, an artsy animated thing from a Japanese artist and a documentary on the forces of nature. The star talk was interesting. Parking was hard to find - leave extra time for that.

Thanks for the review! We apologize parking was an issue. It's one that has yet to be fully resolved. Part of the pains of being on a university campus.
