You can watch a pendulum as the earth turns, stand on Mars and the moon. Watch the funnest a ball track travel all around the large lobby, and watch a movie on the biggest and best 3-D screen I have ever experienced! While watching the new Wizard of Oz, I literally put my hand out thinking for sure snow might... More

So many things to do. If you are looking for an unique and interesting gift for the kids, hit the gift shop there! Love that place, I can stay in there for at least an hour just checking out everything. Something at this venue for EVERYONE!

We recently move to Orem. Decided to visit the planetarium. It's kinda small but fun. It was a school day so it was packed with young kids. Snack bar prices are very reasonable. Didn't go to any of the show because of all the kids, but we will be going back another day. We enjoyed it.

This beautiful spot has a lot more to offer than meets the eye. Remodeled in Fall 2016, the new exhibits offer a lot of interactive learning for people of all ages. The Hansen Dome theater offers 360 degree shows in a dome-shaped theater, with laser light shows at night on the weekends which are VERY fun! The IMAX offers several... More

I don't go often but when I do, I'm always impressed. They've got some really cool interactive exhibits and the dome theater is definitely something to experience. I recently went on a field trip with my son's kindergarten class. It was MADNESS so you definitely want to avoid field trip days (give them a call to find out) but it's... More

I enjoyed the way I was greeted, and they would answer any questions I had. As well the way they explained things about our solar system was quite interesting.

This is a place I take my high school students twice a year. They have a dome theater and an IMAX screen. The exhibits were just redone last year and they are fantastic. Exhibit show different moons in the solar system and close up information of the planets. Well worth your time.
