  • Its a pretty neat place for a brief afternoon outing. The planetarium presenter was fantastic! He was upbeat, informative, and really receptive to answering questions.
  • Love the science museum and the things they do to help promote science education in the area. Very cool exhibits, a really nice building, and the planetarium is awesome.
  • Really enjoyed planetarIum show as well as all the other exhibits they had today. The host for the planetarium show was very upbeat and informative. I think a laser pointer would be a better tool than the little light they use though.
  • Might be more worth it with a tour guide or to visit the planetarium. Not a lot of info by the non-biological displays, like the geological and astronomical. There is a very interesting interactive map of the topography of trails near the area, but that would helpful with you when you are actually hiking. Can't take it with you or access it on mobile.
  • I love this place. Mostly because my kids love it so much. There's lots of stuff for them to do. The prices are a little high if you have multiple kids, but for an every once in a while thing, it's awesome.
