Educational and entertaining! Trying the thermal imaging camera is a must! Different shows are available, so check the show schedule and choose your favorite.

On Friday nights (maybe Saturdays too?) you can walk up to the observatory and look through their big telescopes! We got to see Jupiter and it's 4 moons :D Ask the people that work at the planetarium for details. Also lazers! Check out one of the shows with lazers. You're welcome.

Probably not fro children under 5. We had two 8 y/o and one 10 y/o with us and the two younger ones did fine - the 10y/o loved it. Great way to spend time.

I'm lucky to live close to the Fiske Planetarium...the programming is always great. Also, I like that it's low key (no pinball machines and grossly overpriced food in the lobby) and run mostly by students.

From Our Editors

On September 19, 1975, CU alum Wallace Franze Fiske’s wish “to build and equip a planetarium for the University of Colorado” was finally realized with the dedication of the eponymous geodesic dome built thanks to his generous bequest. From its inaugural showing of a program detailing supernovae decades ago, the planetarium has upheld Fiske’s vision with an ever-evolving lineup of educational initiatives, engaging events, and outreach activities. Now under the helm of a passionate staff composed of members of CU’s Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, its programs grant the community a chance to explore the wonders of outer space. The skyward dome of Fiske Planetarium, featuring a state-of-the-art 8K theater, one of the first in the nation, acts as a projector screen for immersive, 360-degree educational star shows showcasing the universe's glittering galactic splendor. Laser shows set to jazz, rock, and classical music feature choreographed lasers and special effects that perform a wave-particle Humpty Dance for the audience's amusement. Audiences can catch showings in Spanish as well as English.
