  • I recommend stopping by, especially if you have kids. This is not your typical planetarium due to its size, history, and kids programs. Stop by and learn more.  more »
  • The building (in my opinion) is just as cool as the exhibitions. This is a small museum. We went to see two shows for my 5 and 8 yr olds. We saw a planetarium show which was awesome. The woman working...  more »

  • 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? =)
  • 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 though, which felt nice at first, but bring a sweater
  • Great programs for kids. (although my kids get sick like sea motion sickness)
  • When looking for something fun to do with my nephew, the Morehead Planetarium is one of the first places I turn to, especially in the HOT NC summertime... because air conditioning is a good thing! He never tires of their shows, even if he's seen one we go to before. I have fond memories of going there on the school activity bus growing up and happy to share the planetarium with him now.
