  • took my girlfriend here she loved it! this is an amzing place, we had such an amzing experience, you gotta visit this place is worth every penny!
  • The shows here are really spectacular. Totally worth it.
  • Took my family here on a Saturday and it was quite amazing. It was a little crowded but the kids had fun interacting with the other kids. They had a bunch of activities available for all of us. It felt good for my family to actually enjoy each others company and not their phones, or computer. Will probably get an annual membership. Would suggest to any science lover.
  • We saw the Carolina Skies show, which isn't a movie, but a live, narrated tour of the sky visible that night plus a tour of our galaxy and beyond. The theater was freezing cold, which felt nice at first, but bring a sweater
  • Five Stars. Small but nice planetarium. Although, Is it bad for a planetarium to only have five stars? Shouldn't a planetarium have 100 billion stars? =)
