  • We arrived too early to be able to see the planetarium presentation, so we got in for half price. It was a great little visit. We loved the gem collection and the room with puzzles. We spend about an ...  more »

  • The kids showing was okay but everyone enjoyed the exhibits. Ended up spending more time than expected since we were all involved in the hands on brain teasers. And the “make your own solar system”was excellent.
  • Groupon membership price were great lots to do in there great place for all ages
  • Great shows. Check the schedule on line and organize your visit accordingly. Different shows for different ages on the hour. Saw a kid show and all the kids about age 7-10 loved it. Also saw an excellent asteroid show for adults for only $3 more per person. Great glow in dark t-shirts for kids in gift shop. Mineral display in basement. Check out science section for elementary age kids. This is a small place but worth a visit. Park in Cherry Street lot about a block walk on other side of University Street. Free parking on weekends when there is no ball game.
  • Perhaps the finest planetarium in Arizona, the Flandrau Science Center provides spectacular displays of the heavens and wonderful laser shows. Highly recommended.
  • It's fun but I took my 4 and 2 year old and there was hardly anything there for them. They can't do the puzzles. The laser show wasn't until 4pm. There was things on doors like waterlife exhibit but the door was locked. I was kind of disappointed because when I would go about 10 years ago it was a lot more interactive. The staff was very amazing and very helpful just not as fun or educational as I hoped.
