  • The building is a little sad and reeks of damp. A good number of the seats are broken and don't tilt back. The show itself would have been quite good if It hadn't been blurry and out of focus - slight...  more »

  • This a small attraction, worth spending 30 minutes if you purchase a ticket to see all the other areas in the fort. It could do with modernising but gave an idea of the universe and how it was formed.  more »

  • DREADFULL. Staff was very unhelpfull didnt know there subject .Refused to answer questains and kept disappearing out the back.The gift shop full of rubbish very dated and boring nothing worth buying as it was just rubbish. Displays need a vast improvement and the layout is poor .Photos and videos that are shown as part of the displays are not profesional and dated. the information that really matters is not there. Displays show lack of imagination thought and not layed out correctly no interactive displays avaliable on vist. Management unhelpfull and very rude to customers. There was hardly anything to do with Robert hook as advertised dispite being on the trail nothing to do there was nothing regarding the Black Arrow project. You are better of visting the observatory as they know there stuff and will go out there way to help and assist unlike the plantarium management. ITS A JOKE. This is a pitty as its set in fantastic suroundings and your better of visting the orther attractions and leaving this out as they are more informative and ran better. Ive given it one star but thats becouse of its surroundings NOT BECOUSE OF the Island Planetarium.very dissapointed
  • Great fun for the kids nice walk through the woods with great views over the solent
  • Great Planetarium Shows and Robert Hooke Exhibition is here
