Beautiful planet videos and photos, wonderful star education. Good for my 11 year old he was excited when the laser show started as an adult I could have done with an entire educational show.

Fiske is probably my favorite place for the planetarium. They have a presentation first, then the show. The planetarium has summer concerts, but the groupon will not be accepted towards the concerts.

The whole experience was nice. My 4 year old enjoyed the show and there were a few exhibits to look at afterwards, too.

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.
