I love this place and so do the kids. Last spring, we took Mom with us and she had a blast. The planetarium is interesting and the show is fabulous. It only lasts about 40 minutes or so, but it is awesome.

Check the Planetaium's schedule for the family shows and the "not so family" midnight shows. Great laser works and very informative when showing actual planetary demonstrations.

Still remember the excellent educational shows in this planetarium from years ago when I was in school. Have heard it is still exceptional. Need to visit again myself.

I LOVE the Noble Planetarium! It is located within the Ft Worth Museum of Science & History and does amazing shows! Extremely entertaining and not very expensive!
