“Skip it.”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Wow. I am very rarely so unimpressed with a place. The program was very elementary. We were bored to tears. Go to the planetarium in Fort Worth instead. LOVE UTA just not their planetarium.

“nothing special”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

We went wishing to see stars and planets. We saw a long not special movie on the Mayan prophecy and an annoying noisy movie with special effects.

“The University of Texas at Arlington Planetarium”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

If you are looking for interesting things to do in Arlington and have run out of stadium tours try something a little different. The planetarium is run by the college and not only does shows but an instructor speaks to the audience and gives you a little learning along with the show. There is also a roller coaster simulation they do that is way cool. Great for kids.

“Grandparents and Children Enjoyed It”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

The planetarium is a very worthwhile and enjoyable excursion. It is well organized and easily understandable. You are provided with a wealth of information, but in an easily digestible manner. The light show is worth seeing.
