  • If you can get into one of their mission to mars, it is great! I have done it twice with school groups.  more »
  • Lots of hands on things for children to try. Loved the planatarium show. Very interesting and informative.  more »
  • This museum is expensive and has little to see unless you are a teacher and are taking students to experience the mission activity.  more »

  • Neat place but as far as the general public is concerned, it's primarily an imax theater. There are a few interactive games that are geared toward kids. There are some nasa space exhibits that adults would find interesting. Don't expect to spend more than a half hour, though. The imax is a good price: 10 for adults and 9 if you're a student. I prefer it over the ridiculous prices of the other theaters. The screen is huge and the theater is clean.
  • So i am giving this 3 stars because the theatre is absolutely incredible and i enjoyed watching the movie a lot. The concession stand employees however, i did not enjoy them. There was one particular guy who not only had a really nasty attitude towards me and my boyfriend, but everyone else it seemed. You could tell he did NOT want to be there. So i see them talking about some pizza and there was pizza in a small oven and they were talking to someone asking them if they wanted their pizza cooked a certain way and all that. Well i decided i wanted some pizza also so i went up to the guy and said “do you sell the pizza in slices?” and he gives me the most horrible and disgusted look and says “um we don’t sell pizza here.” So not only was i kind of mad that there was no pizza and i must have misunderstood, but the guy was a total jerk and i just looked at him and said “never mind then” and walked off. Totally embarrassing but the movie fixed my attitude so i’m giving this place 3 stars...also their other stuff there is pretty cool too :)
  • Yea this place is not so interesting.. Really expensive just for a birthday party. I would recommend people to go to skyzone or fun station.
  • CLC is fun place for the whole family. Plenty of educational activities, great for organizing kids Birthday party. Great IMAX screen as well as Planetarium.
  • Best place to see Imax . Wonderful screen and good ticket prices. Only thing is the seats are basic.
