Going to the Planetarium is always interesting and educational,whether the focus is on UFO's or the Southern Hemisphere as seen from the Karoo. Beautiful! No clouds or smog.

A good place to educate yourself and the kids about the space. Planets and stars are shown. Current studies are also shared.

Very interesting experience, particularly for kids under 5. The shows are not properly advertised with regards to age-relevant audiences. My 7 year old granddaughter was bored stiff! Well presented, though, but please indicate clearly your targeted audience. Will definitely visit again

Amazing reproduction of the nights sky and all that it has to offer. Even tho the facility is fairly old now, the vista's of the night skies are amazing. Well worth a visit.

The planetarium is really worth taking your children! The staff has a story lined up for them more than four the accompanying parents /adults.

An outdated show, but oh so magical to be at the Planetarium. Go here with kids or to see an adult show, the night sky is beautiful (even in the daytime!)
