Great for kids and adults! Very unique, and you will be amazed! Children under 5 will have a hard time sitting through it, but those in the 7+ age group as well as adults will find it very interesting.

Kovac Planetarium is a self built planetarium between Rhinelander and Crandon Wisconsin. Reservations are required. The planetarium show is offered only by reservation. Call to see if
there will be a show that meets your schedule. It is an excellent show.

Made reservations with Frank Kovac for myself and 3 family members a few weeks out from our visit. All I can really say is....WOW! Frank did an amazing job presenting, teaching and just talking with us. He is a brilliant individual who is clearly passionate about his love of the stars. The fact that he built this entire Planetarium himself is absolutely amazing. The facility itself is very clean and comfortable and the admission fee quite modest. Frank even provides neck and back pillows during his show for those that need them. He spent over an hour with us and the entire encounter greatly exceeded my expectations! This is a definite must-do when in the area. Also, an article on Frank Kovac and his planetarium, I believe entitled "Backyard Genius", will be in the September 2013 Popular Mechanic.

As amazing as this place is, and as great and informative as the sky show is, the real story here is how the planetarium came to be; the owner/host built it with his own hands. It's heart warming to listen to Frank Kovac talk about his planetarium and teach you about astronomy; this man has, clearly, found his passion. A visit to Kovac Planetarium is so educational and inspiring. I highly recommend this attraction.
