    My wife and I, along with two dozen others, paid to see the 4:00 PM show at the Davis Planetarium. The show started 15 minutes late, consisted of a made-for-grade-school video and did not include a planetarium show. We wanted to see the stars, to marvel at the universe revolving around us and to see the laser lights. Instead, we got a cheap video projected onto the dome of the theater.

    Stopped by over the weekend on a quick trip to Mississippi. It was ok, there wasn't much organization to selling tickets and the "radio show" was over the top, gave little interesting information, and was 20 years out of date. The place has potential, and one of their other shows might be better, but I wasn't impressed.

    This is one of the best kept secrets in Jackson!! It is a great facility with friendly staff and is not usually crowded at all. Another Jackson secret is the Science Museum. Cheap fun at its best!!

At one point, the video ended but its audio continued, leaving us wondering if something had malfunctioned. At the end, we were left to sit in our chairs wondering if the "show" we had paid to see would start. We were left sitting. Neither the projectionist nor the girl at the front desk could be found. Eventually, we left, everyone shaking their heads and making comments. It was a fiasco, a ripe-off. I'll bad-mouth this planetarium to any and all I talk to. Do not go the the Russell C Davis Planetarium!
