The hallways were filled with some interesting objects, experiments, and things to do and see. The most enjoyable was the presentation about a solar eclipse. Might have to stop back in Casper in August to see a total eclipse.

Love our Planetarium!!!Been going to it for years and never tire of it. They have great shows and are very informative. If you haven't been here in a while, head back for a great time.

Although there were only 5 other guests at the planetarium when we went, I thought it was excellent. The kid putting on the presentation did a wonderful job, very interesting!

This place is okay for a small town that doesn't offer much in the way of entertainment. It's pretty small but, the shows are very well done and the staff is pretty friendly.

Excellent shows for kids and a fun place to go. Glad it finally opened again after being closed so long. A must see.

This is a very good place to take children or yourself for well done shows about the universe. I have also been here for a radio play which was very good.

The Planetarium is always fun to visit a few times a year. Educational and always something new. The staff is always friendly and the price is about the same as a movie. I would recommend this for children and kids birthday parties.

A great place for taking your children if they're interested in stars and skies. The theater is dome-shaped, making the show even more interesting. The price was a little bit high imo thought.
