  • The show we enjoyed at the end of the night was really cool, but I would recommend just enjoying the actual planetarium more than anything. We had a fun projectionist that knew his stuff and was funny...  more »
  • I regret going to the planetarium. We went to a Jimi Hendrix laser light show, and it was basically an hour of very repetitive and unimpressive laser lights set to eardrum-blasting music.  more »
  • The introductory part is interesting, however if you have already seen other planetariums can spare you a visit. The show with lasers is terrible, okay only if you have kids. Look for any deals on Groupon, so spending is more in line with the service (the full ticket to $10 is definitely exaggerated!). In any case, in Boulder there's definitely better to do!!!

  • This is a small, simple, no-frills planetarium, a bit dated, reasonable prices, but you can learn a few things while you're there. While we visited, they had some telescopes out and some astronomy staff to answer questions, which was great, although I don't know if that's a regular thing over there. I wish they had more shows and shows that were longer. Not a bad place, but I'd still recommend Gates Planetarium over this one. This place is good for a visit or two, but that's about it, really.
  • It's not very big and it's pretty small. However I'm looking forward to the show about the stars. It's a pretty cool museum.
  • If you have never been to one of these you should check it out, went to a laser show, pretty cool, kids loved it!
  • Amazing place! Life changing. Loved the narration and everyone was nice.
  • On campus experience of things from other dimensions here in this one. Cool facility with really inexpensive tickets. Check out Groupon for even better rates!
