I liked this place. The interior wasn't as large as I thought it would be. But it was still cool to check out.

Look. I'm from Chicago. We have a Planetarium there that's AMAZING. So I assumed that this place was going to be at least somewhat museum-like. Nuh-uh. They have one movie room and that's about it. Exhibits are temporary and have little to do with Space/Planets. Also, movies stop showing at 4:00PM, so the 7:00 posted closing time - who knows... More

I visited the Planetarium for the second time in January. This time I was with a couple of friends and two children (ages 7 and 8). I enjoyed it again and watched a couple of films I had not seen previously. I also took the time to observe a couple of the displays. I think the main theater which has... More

If you have a schoolboy and want to make him interested in science, Planetarium is the place you have to go on weekend. It offers a great selection of science fiction films that won't disappoint you and your children. Films are 30-40 minutes long and prices for the tickets differ depending on the place you choose. Moreover your children can... More

My fourteen year old son and I visited the planetarium on a week day, so as you can imagine it was full of school trips. We enjoyed the show about the formation of the galaxy with all it's wonderful special effects, but was a little disappointed at the brevity of the experience for the price. It's worth a visit if...

I've been to planetarium many times, but after it was redone and started showing spherical movies ony once. It was a nice experience. Most of the movies and cartoons are 30-50 minutes long, so kids will not get bored sitting for too long. As for me it is better to sit in the back row, because you will have to... More
