Meet Clark Planetarium


Clark Planetarium’s mission is to create and present enlightening experiences that inspire wonder in learning about space and science and to promote greater public awareness of the science in our daily lives.

For more than 50 years, Clark Planetarium (formerly Hansen Planetarium) has been Salt Lake’s go-to destination for visitors of all ages who want to discover and learn about space and science.

We engage audiences inside our walls and across the State of Utah in the creative process that is a science through educational outreach, hands-on exhibits, on-site programming, and our IMAX and dome theatres.
