Telescopes changed the way people viewed stars, which were previously only thought to be useful for epic games of connect-the-dots. Have fun with the sky above with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a family membership to the Clark Planetarium (a $99 value). The family membership includes annual admission to the planetarium for up to five family members, as well as a number of benefits. Clark Planetarium harbors a wide range of interactive exhibits, including a digital scale that displays your weight on Jupiter, an asteroid, and other intergalactic worlds. One of the planetarium's newest exhibits, Science on a Sphere, employs a sphere six feet in diameter that displays an assortment of video sequences, such as plate tectonics, the Milky Way, and Earth at night. Exhibits showcasing re-creations of the moon and Mars can be enjoyed by the universally curious and aerospace engineers alike.

Membership to the Clark Planetarium includes free admission to documentary programming at the ATK IMAX Theatre, as well as the Hansen Dome Theatre, an immersive 360-degree digital-projection experience. In the dome theater, visitors can catch movies such as Extreme Planets and Attack of the Space Pirates, as well as cosmic light shows such as the classic Dark Side of the Moon. Members are also privy to discounts at the Fun Clark Planetarium Store, which stocks science kits, eco-friendly toys, and a plethora of stargazing accoutrements.


Frommer's highly recommends Clark Planetarium. Five TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl-eyes.

  • There are plenty of exhibits for free that are very interesting, especially for a non-space guru. – Zifmer, TripAdvisor
  • Kids of all ages can walk on a lunar scape, can be weathermen, and can find out how much they would weigh on different planets. The gift shop is also large and definitely worth a look. – ogdenmom, TripAdvisor

Clark Planetarium

Within Clark Planetarium's space-exploration-themed facility, the interactive displays and immersive IMAX and planetarium shows enlighten visitors with interesting scientific facts. Spread out across 10,000 square feet, more than 15 hands-on exhibits entrance guests with artifacts such as photos from the Hubble Space Telescope and a moon rock brought back from the Apollo 15 mission.

Audio in the ATK IMAX Theatre emanates from a 14,000-watt digital surround-sound system as the 70-foot wide, five-story-high screen accommodates Hollywood hits and insightful documentaries in 3-D. More entertainment abounds in the Hansen Dome Theatre, where six high-definition projectors fill the 55-foot domed screen with seamless images during scientific films and cosmic light shows.

Customer Reviews

I took my grandchildren, and we were all there for the first time. (Many years ago I had been to the other location in downtown Salt Lake City.) It was an amazing experience. Everyone treated us great, the shows were wonderful, and the children found a new favorite place to go with Grandma!
