We scheduled my daughters birthday party here. The staff did a wonderful job of making it both educational and fun for kids who ranged in ages from 4-8.

This is a must go... Remember when you took that field trip in grade school to the Planetarium?? This is a must if you want to feel have that feeling of being part of something grander than yourself. Use your kids as an excuse to go back if you have to... So fun!

They offer quarterly "night sky" programs that are open to the public for a reasonable price (a few dollars for adults, free for children under a certain age) I have attended a presentation for every season at least once, if not more. I love taking my nieces and nephews to learn about the stars.

The planetarium is old-school, tiny and charming. On the beautiful College of Idaho campus. The planetarium director is engaging and enthusiastic, and great with children. She makes you want to learn more about astronomy!
