Best Attractions & Activities, Things to Do with Kids: Built in 1975, this notable CU-Boulder landmark features Zeiss, one of the most remarkable stargazing machines in the world. Star shows, lectures, and laser light productions are featured on Thursdays, Fridays, and select Saturdays. This season, Fiske will begin a transformation into "one of the most sophisticated planetariums and multimedia centers in the country" by building an all-new immersive theater system. As such, Fiske's dome will be able to show our universe with remarkable detail and breathtaking clarity. A state of the art star projector will show as clear a sky as could be seen high in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Visitors will be treated to 360 degrees of surround video and sound courtesy of the new and improved video projectors. Subjects will include astronomy, travel videos, art, music creations, and more.
