We had a private showing at the planetarium as part four company's annual awards. The staff did a very nice job and the presentation was interesting and informative. The set for our office event was nicely done and the entire evening was a success.

We watched both a great presentation on the stars and in another show an intense laser show. (Be prepared for a heavy-duty visual stimulation.)

If you're into this type of thing, it's a good place. It's totally showing it's age at this point but this is a good old fashioned planetarium. Great for our kids who are super-into space. They also do some fun music-type shows. Check out their...More
