  • Nice visit with my family. The planetarium movie was the best. They spent a few minutes on constellations and then there was a nice lesson on dark matter. I feel like everyone learned something...  more »

  • Fantastic! Great place for all ages. My 4 yr old triplets had a lot of fun interacting and learning. The movies are a must see! The staff was friendly and helpful (which nowadays you can't find). We will definitely be back.
  • One of the kids absolutely favorite places to go!!! My oldest son (3) obtained a love for space here and begs me to teach him new things about the planets all the time now. Can't wait to bring them back here sometime!!!
