  • Truly unbelievable the amount of history in this building. I was awestruck by the Duryea car they had on display. The first car ever built in the USA!
  • Cannot tell u how much we love this place. Absolutely cannot wait to go back. Planning to make this a yearly trip on a long weekend down from Naperville! Hoping to spend even more time next time around.
  • Great place for the kids. Lots of hands on activities, water station, planetarium, gift shop. We had a blast! So much so, that the kids asked to go back the next day.
  • My favorite movie theater in town. The giant screen auditorium offers a 5x7 story film experience at a lower cost than area IMAX offerings. Plus, you can even have wine or beer with the feature. Showtimes are usually limited and only major blockbusters are screened (excluding educational and special event films). As part of the museum, they even have special showings of major films with lower volume and the lights on slightly to assist those with sensory sensitivity.
  • Went to a "Pub Trivia Under the Dome" night at the planetarium. They offered beer and pizza and had trivia. It was great! It's awesome that they do events like this in the planetarium.
