Are you ready to explore the wonders and magic of space and the universe on your next family day out? If you are, you could say you're in for an out of this world experience when you visit Casper Planetarium!
The Casper Planetarium in Wyoming offers a wide variety of shows that appeal to adults and children alike, giving kids not only a great learning experience, but also an amazing insight into all the incredible features outside of our atmosphere.
The full dome theater includes a digital projection, 360 degree fully animated graphics and surround sound, completely immersing the senses as you travel to the far reaches of the galaxy and beyond. Each program is preceded by a tour of the night sky given by one of their staff.
The themes of the shows vary, so check the schedule and make sure you don't miss out! It might be a Halloween special, or it could be taking you through the Hot and Energetic Universe, or you might be off on a Cosmic Journey!
Don't miss spending some time in the lobby checking out the various displays either. Here, interactive exhibits with a science theme can introduce kids to a number of very cool artifacts including items from the Space Shuttle, they can feel how heavy a meteorite actually is, or they might want to play the moon-phase game.
The lobby displays are free and open during regular hours, unless they are hosting a school.
So get ready kids to head out on an adventure of a lifetime, where the planets and beyond are waiting to be explored!
