The Barlow Planetarium at the University of Wisconsin-Fox Valley opened to the public on March 20, 1998.
This is a world-class facility for 3-D excitement, giant full-color special effects and crystal-clear, five-channel, 10,000 watt surround sound.
The Barlow Planetarium has a 48-foot projection dome and seats 98 people, with four additional spaces for wheelchair access.
An Evans and Sutherland Digistar II® star projector recreates a realistic night sky and 3-D effects which pull the audience into a virtual world.
Interactive keypads at each seat allow audiences to get involved in performances.
Cutting-edge Sky Skan® video projection and automation systems make this planetarium state-of-the-art.
A treasure of cool info. Great for families
Interesting planetarium with many infringing presentations.
Great place. I saw the laser light show, fun!
One of the best Planetariums in the area. It was so good, we used to have memberships. We live an hour and a half away but we should take a road trip again.
I like to take my 7 year old grandson..the star shows are, informative,at his age level,not too long and fun. He asks to go often,last time we took his 2 year old sister (who hates everything esp if she can't move around) and even she sat through the entire presentation. I would like to recommend them. The tickets are reasonable and the staff was very nice. A great was to spend a winter afternoon. 5 STARS from our family
