  • The planetarium offers more than just a view of the stars. Despite the fact that many of the exhibits were not functioning, there was enough to keep the kiddos involved. The only costs involved the IM...  more »

  • This was a very hands-on place for kids and adults to learn about space. I appreciated that it was geared toward kids but also gave adults a chance to play, too. The dome theatre was closed but the IM...  more »

  • So fun!! My boyfriend and I came here while visiting the Gateway up in Salt Lake and had a great time! We went at about 4pm on a weekend, and it wasn't very crowded at all. Admission is free, and the shows are reasonably priced. All of the exhibits are really neat. I love how they've added more interactive exhibits and games. We stayed for maybe an hour and a half! Great place for families and date night.
  • This a a small and humble planetarium with a few very nice science exhibits that is geared towards children. I also saw Exploding Universe, which was very informational and concise (Not to mention amazing on a domed planetarium screen). They also do a quick astronomy lesson before the movie which helps you find night sky events in the days after visiting the planetarium. A fun and quick adventure when Traveling through Salt Lake!
  • Came in the afternoon on a Saturday. Great place and free admission. It didn't feel overcrowded in there, but there were a lot of people. There are only a few exhibits and it's not exactly a place you'd spend hours at, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there with friends. Has a gift shop full of cool sciencey toys and things in it. It's right at a mall with stores and food. Would recommend it to those who are looking for small outing at a low cost.
  • My teenagers had a great time! We watched a Dome show, but it was geared towards younger kids. Next time, we'll research the shows ahead of time and watch something like the Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin one!!
  • The Planetarium is so amazing this year. They have a lot more interactive features an exhibits open all around. Lots of great little trinkets and stuff to add to any science dreamers heart.
