The planetarium was a wonderful evening out in Jasper. It can be done in ANY weather! The staff were very knowledgeable, funny and engaging. We booked onto the dome experience and were throughly impressed. Due to a cancellation the staff gave us a free telescope...More

We prepped our young boys for the visit so they could be rested for the 10pm show. We were excited going in but it truly exceeded all our already high expectations. The love for astronomy shines through every element of their presentation -- it's addictive....More

The planetarium was unique, a blow up version. The staff were great, the setting good, but the program was lacking. I was hoping for more explanation of the stars we could see in the sky, but in my mind too much of the show was...More

Hi Bob; Our staff of accredited guides and astronomy author/journalists are always happy to spend a little extra time on some things. As we happily say several times each tour in the dome, be sure to ask lots of questions and we'll be happy to...More

We were so disappointed in this experience. For more than $100 for an evening out as a couple, we were expecting so much more. First, the "planetarium" is an inflatable dome inside tent. The show, although well presented and by no fault of our guide,...More

My six year old daughter and I did the planetarium show along with stargazing on August 22. The show in the dome was wonderful, and if you're a geeky sap like me you might even cry a little. During the stargazing we were unfortunately thwarted...More
