It's a little difficult on the neck and it is rather unfortunate if you need to use the restroom (no re-entry allowed because you may get motion sickness while headed back to your seat). I haven't experienced anything other than watching a movie in... More

I recommend this planetarium because I learned much about early astronomers and current star bunches. The seating was comfortable, so I felt relaxed during my viewing. The graphics and lighting made me feel as though I was looking into outer space. The fare was inexpensive, and if I lived in Lincoln, I would even consider getting a membership to Morrill... More

With fulldome theater, it is not limited to star shows, but great digital shows as well. Very knowledgeable presenters. Housed in the University of Nebraska State Museum

My children grew up going to the planetarium Saturday nights throughout the year. The volunteers running the telescopes are always friendly and knowledgeable & I thank them for all their work.

Great place to take children and very interactive. 3 floors of activities for kids and adults. There are 2 big shows that you can currently view. I highly recommend taking your family to see this when in Lincoln.

Outstanding narrator of our show! We learned a great deal about how to better identify our skies and we have visited many planetariums! Great tour of Morrill Hall too is included in price. Perfect for grandchildren and grandparents!

A very short show that repeated it's pictures over and over in this presentation. I would like to go to a star party some time, though.

It's not the Chicago Alder planetarium, but for a smaller city, it's very well done. They have both traditional star shows, plus some great music and laser light show that teens seem to love.

We just joined the museum because there are so many activities to enjoy there! For the price of admission to see a show in the planetarium, you get a movie as well as an astronomy lesson of tonight's sky. Loved it!
