Ward Beecher Planetarium Reviews & Ratings
The only local planetarium, so it's a good experience. Strange hours because it's actually a classroom at YSU. But they open it to the public as well. It's not a huge place, and the show became boring compared one I saw in Cleveland. But good for kids, a cheap, fun, educational day, great event for a Saturday in the middle of winter.
Great shows for all ages. My daughter is three and enjoys the shows as much as me and my husband. And the shows are all free!
One of the top 3 planetariums in Eastern Ohio
VERY comfortable, pleasant, informational , and enjoyable all around! I can't brag enough about how great our local planetarium is!
Always a great time
