  • My 2 sons and I came from the Utica area this past weekend and had a great experience. Well worth the trip! The facility is amazing and the presentation of each show is all state of the art. The price of admission is extremely reasonable to take the whole family. We feel like we've discovered a hidden gem, and can't wait to return! Thanks to all involved for providing such a wonderful educational and entertaining event.
  • We drove 3 hours to visit and it was so worth it! Totally blew us away. That feeling of seeing and experiencing something new and unexpected for the first time was amazing! We went on a weekday for two shows. The crowd was very small, but the host was so knowledgeable and professional, he treated us as if it was a full house. I wish I had as much passion about something as he showed about space. The gift shop had some great items and the prices were great. Definitely will be back!
  • I was blown away. This is a must. This is one of the coolest planetariums I've been to. Definelty go and check out this place.
  • The newly renovated planetarium is FANTASTIC! This place is great for all ages. Their show line-up always includes interesting / amazing features for kids and adults. Mike who runs the shows is very friendly, knowledgeable and nice to talk to. Their souvenir stand has great gifts for kids.
  • A real gem in a town the size of Flint. Longway Planetarium has been a staple of Flint for years. The renovations about a decade ago dramatically enhanced the space and linked it with the Flint Youth Theatre. The shows are wonderful if you can see one, but if not just take a walk inside and look at the fascinating images in the lobby and near the entrance to the dome. Some of the cosmic photos are worth it by themselves.
