I loved the planetarium before the remodel but it is better than ever! The shows are awesome but the murals with information about stars and planets is educational and fun. All of the family would enjoy it!

My husband and I got married at Longway over the summer. We had been to a couple of shows, including their Valentine's Day dinner under the stars and the Pink Floyd show. Fun for adults and kids alike.
