    Took my family here on a Saturday and it was quite amazing. It was a little crowded but the kids had fun interacting with the other kids. They had a bunch of activities available for all of us.

    Five Stars. Small but nice planetarium. Although, Is it bad for a planetarium to only have five stars? Shouldn't a planetarium have 100 billion stars? =)
