Let's start by admitting that it's sort of impressive that a town like Caspar would even have a planetarium. Having said that, their planetarium projects a fuzzy image on a very small ceiling, and the eclipse-centered show was mundane. OK, we're science geeks so maybe...More

Crowded because of the impending eclipse but full of very excited kids which was a good sign that it was doing a good job. The staff was friendly but the place needs to be spruced up a bit. The seats were uncomfortable for tall people...More

The hallways were filled with some interesting objects, experiments, and things to do and see. The most enjoyable was the presentation about a solar eclipse. Might have to stop back in Casper in August to see a total eclipse.

Although there were only 5 other guests at the planetarium when we went, I thought it was excellent. The kid putting on the presentation did a wonderful job, very interesting!

This place is okay for a small town that doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment. It's pretty small but, the shows are very well done and the staff is pretty friendly.

Excellent shows for kids and a fun place to go. Glad it finally opened again after being closed so long. A must see.

This is a very good place to take children or yourself for well done shows about the universe. I have also been here for a radio play which was very good.

The Planetarium is always fun to visit a few times a year. Educational and always something new. The staff is always friendly and the price is about the same as a movie. I would recommend this for children and kids birthday parties.
