This facility is totally far out! Learn how much you would weigh on Venus and about black holes in the universe. In the Star Theater, visitors recline in comfortable seats while the heavens open above them on the Skydome screen. Among the many exhibits, you can see a meteorite weighing more than one ton that actually fell in Nevada. The public observatory contains a 12-inch reflecting telescope so you can see the stars up close and personal. Call for more information on Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center.
We went to a "live star talk" given by Associate Director Dan Ruby. The presentation was very interesting. Mr. Ruby took questions following the show. He is knowlegeable and funny. We learned quite a bit and had fun doing it. We're taking our grandkids back here soon! Great gift shop too!
I enjoyed the dome theater. The exhibit room was a bit small, but it kept me entertained for about 30 minutes. We saw two shows they were very informative. I would go back if they had more shows that I would like to see.
Prices are not as expensive like all the other planetariums, but there's a reason for that. Quality of the show was very blurry and dark. It wasn't all that spectacular as I thought it would be, compared to all the other planetariums I've been to. It's also very small, seats about 25 most. I guess maybe because the observatory is part of the University of Reno, so it's not all that OOH and AHH. Not a lot of displays and exhibits, but it was still nice to look around. The show we saw was boring and dull, so I do NOT recommend coming here.
