Clark Planetarium Reviews & Ratings

  • The planetarium was a fun experience for our kids (3 and 7 years). The parking was available in the parking garage next door. It was to our surprise that admission was free. The exhibits were interactive and nothing like I had seen before. They also had good samples of asteroids. It also featured a snack bar and fun gift shop. Highly recommend!

  • Beautiful museum with lots of interactive displays, a dome theatre and IMAX. Concessions are not terribly expensive and the museum gift shop has lots of educational items , including science based toys, telescopes, posters, and tees. All items reasonably priced. The planetarium is amazing. Huge difference from the old Minolta analog device perched in the middle of the dome I saw as a kid, with metal perforated plates it projected through. This one is all computer controlled, rear projected graphics. Admission is free and shows are $7 and last about an hour. Well worth it. My 3 year old daughter is fascinated with astronomy and loved it!

  • Super cute and FREE experience only the dome was a charge. Great info and lots of interactive options. Two levels and things all over. Nice gift shop w all sorts of options at every budget price point. If we were all not so hangry we would have stayed longer but we needed lunch.

  • What it’s free?! To our pleasant surprise. Plenty things to see and exhibits for the kids to keep their hands busy. And don’t be afraid to stop for popcorn at the middle floor for a little snack. Super reasonable when you think about what you normally pay for theatre popcorn. Kids loved it. Will definitely go back.

  • I must have the nerdiest kids b/c this is where they always beg to go! Better this than the movies though. I'm glad the Salt Lake area has a place like this for them to learn about our universe.

  • what shows are currently playing?

    Answer Report Abuse
    • It currently has shows like A Beautiful Planet 3D, Accidental Astronauts, Explore, and Great Barrier Reef 3D. But, as it is not the official website of the planetarium, I think, you should call them directly on  1 385-468-7827 for exact timings and other details.
