  • Friendly staff. Clean facilities and lots of parking available. If the planetarium parking is full, there is another parking lot available on mt cootha road. The shows and staff are knowledgeable. They run shows for younger kids so always check age group on each show to choose an appropriate one. The planetarium also has lots of exhibits to keep you entertained. Check their website for live viewing shows using their resident telescope. Highly recommend it for all ages groups.
  • Good Friendly staff. Lots of parking available. Clean facilities. Kids loved it. Must try to go there on a clear night to get the best experience.
