Located in downtown Salt Lake City, Clark Planetarium offers an out-of-this-world experience that is a blast for all ages. Clark features 10,000 square feet of exhibit space, as well as the breathtaking full-dome theatre and IMAX theatre. Clark also boasts one of the best science gift stores in northern Utah. For many, Clark Planetarium is the first trip to space, and we hope it won't be the last.
