  • I really liked the first half of our Planetarium experience, during which we learned about stars. The second half, however, was a very strange laser show that had nothing to do with space. The staff was nice and the planetarium appears to be doing some updates, I hope that will include ditching the laser show.
  • ARE YOU KIDDING ME? We were in town for only 2 days from Michigan, and stumbled across a laser show with Outkast music at the planetarium...and it was FANTASTIC. What a cool idea, and the show was insanely fun. Sooooo glad I found it when searching online! Really unique show to attend!
  • Stopped by here for a show called We Are Stars, staff was very nice and full of information. Simulations they played and showed were amazing. I would have been happy with just sitting in there learning about space and astrophysics for 1 hour or more. This was my first time being to a planetarium and I will be going back again someday. "Is math related to science?" xD
  • Great place to enjoy a view and learn.
  • Saw a fantastic show about the Sun. Great narration, and the host spent lots of time after explaining the mechanisms of the fantastic digital projection system. The old mechanical system is on display in the lobby. We had a conference reception in the lobby, which was done nicely.
