“Amazing. Absolutely amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

There are no adequate words to relay to the reader how impressed I was with our visit to Kovac's Planetarium. You need to go there and experience it yourself to understand. I was literally moved to tears. The painstaking dedication that went into creating this is beyond anything I have experienced before. This man is truly living his passion and because of it every visitor comes away better... a bit transformed even... for it. Thank you Frank Kovac. We will definitely be back.

“You will be glad you came”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We went with a group to the planetarium. You might think once you have seen one, you have seen them all, right? Yiu are wrong. This planetarium is one of a kind with the 4000# sky sphere. Very informative, unique, and interesting. You will not be disappointed. Attention to detail here is evident throughout facility.

“Neat Place -- Good to See Someone Doing What They Love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

This was not the most technologically advance planetarium I've visited, but it was really unique and a fun experience. You get a very personalized introduction to the galaxy and learn some fun facts. Plus, it's fun to walk around and see how the planetarium works and the pictures of it being built. Worth an afternoon.

“DAYTIME STAR GAZING AT IT'S BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

We visited the Kovac Planetarium simply "looking for something to do" on our winter visit to the Northwoods and WOW...what an awesome experience! Frank, through his vision, dedication, time and energy, has created this fabulous environment that takes you out of this world! It is an amazing and must see attraction.

He begins the presentation with his inspiration for the planetarium, explanation on the construction and then... you are transported on a trip to the stars. The atmosphere is very relaxing and Franks recreation of the night sky is INCREDIBLE. His delivery style is easy going, extremely knowledgeable and suitable for all ages. The ambiance is so pleasant my 4 year old niece and 4 month old nephew had no problem with the length of time spent gazing up at the night sky.

This is a place you can go to with anyone and go to again no problem!
ALOHA!!
