  • Saw one of the kids shows. Impressive show, even if my little one was less excited about the look into the night sky directly afterwards. The exhibits outside are good, and it's a surprisingly good gift shop, too.
  • Free to walk around the educational displays. Some of the models are very intricate and impressive. Great range of fossils and meteorites for sale in the gift shop.
  • Great fun under the dome. Very educational.
  • Not much on display, pricing per show per person was a bit ridiculous. Very disappointed we couldn't see more on display and couldn't afford to see more then one show!
  • Educational. Interesting. Science. The show was pretty amazing. This should be on anyones list, any age.
