  • This is a small museum with wonderfully laid out exhibits and with a planetarium. As an intro to museums for younger children it is excellent. Large and small mammals, lots of birds and insects up clo...  more »
  • So cold indoor for a while to kill time in I wanted to, like. Is very small compared to the Museum in other cities, and together they compact celestial Planetarium (very nice) can be reached from stuffed animals, it was pretty crowded.

  • Me and my family went on vacation to Rhode Island and decided it would be fun to go see the museum and most excitedly, the planetarium. In Florida, me and my younger brother always loved planetariums. When we sat down in the room with minimal leg space, my family was optimistic. But as the lights turned off, the projection on the rounded ceiling was so dim and colorless, it was impossible to make anything out. My mother has always been fine with planetariums, but has an issue with claustrophobia. It was so dimly projected, pitch black and tight, that she had a panic attack and had to be escorted. A terribly dissapointing experience. If you want to see a good planetarium, vacation to Florida.
