  • This is a great place to take your kids. My daughter attended several field trips here, and they have had events in the evening when there is going to be an event like a meteor shower, comet or eclipse. I have really enjoyed our visits here and it's a great learning experience. They have an auditorium with a curved ceiling where they can project the night sky and constellations. And it's nice and cool inside during the summer!
  • Cozy neighborhood planetarium with rotating monthly presentations. Very nice and personable staff give a tour of the night sky following the movie. Great for all ages!
