Occupying an impressive limestone structure built in 1905; this interactive museum offers the young and young-at-heart an entertaining look at the universe. An ideal reward for kids who behaved well while touring nearby Temple Square , the museum encourages participation with simulated space flights, star shows and dancing laser lights. Astronomy courses are available for all ages in the summer and special programs are scheduled throughout the year. Call ahead to find out show timings.

I have always enjoyed taking my daughter to visit the old Hansen's Planetarium, but when I took my grandchildren to Clark Planetarium I believe we a doing a disservice to our young people and the astronomical education.
