  • We have annual passes to the science museum. It's only $50 for up to 6 people. Well worth the money. They have shows in the planetarium every day, and plenty of things to look at such as how oil rigs operate, dinosaur exhibits, meterite exhibit, animal skeleton and skulls, an insect exhibit called crawl space, and more. They also have exhibits come in a few times a year as well. Check their calendar of events on their website.
  • I'm an adult and I loved this museum! They have a great virtual reality section with educational and fun stuff for kids and adults alike. They also had an excellent bug exhibit. Lots of other cool stuff. Oh and don't pass up the chance to see the planetarium! Coolest part of the place. It will spark your childs love of space!
  • Amazing gem in Lafayette- Dino exhibits, planetarium, virtual reality, fossils, gems, meteorites- very modern and sleek building. Highly recommend for a fun and interesting afternoon!
  • Perfect afternoon for my grandsons who were entertained and entranced. Thanked me and hugged me and said, Thank you, Grammie, we had the best time. They loved the virtual reality opportunities, and the planetarium show. They laughed as they shocked each other with static electricity. I loved the History of Space Travel all the way back to Gagarin and the Mercury 7. Inexpensive, well planned museum in modest space. The staff was excellent, friendly, patient, and informative.
  • This place is super exciting. Didn't know it was here. Had a GREAT Time. Thanks
