  • Great museum and science center at a great price. They've really improved it over the years.
  • Low admission, nice museum with a lot of information and hands-on exhibits. Was not disappointed.
  • Went for a field trip when I was younger, absolutely loved the place and will return so my children can find a love for it as well
  • The planetarium machine broke after I bought a couple of tickets. The museum was nice, but lacking in the number of exhibits.
  • Nice little museum. Planetarium shows had options for young kids and older folks. Would NOT recommend the planetarium for kids under 3 even for kid friendly programs - we had a screaming child in the show when we attended when the lights went out. Lots of Christa McAuliffe and some Alan Shephard items. Plus a few exhibits on the environment. Good for a couple hours.
