  • The museum was great, but the new remodeled dome has some issues. Was unable to watch an entire showing due to the engineer's inexperience. The chairs are ridged forward facing high backs, in a dome that you spend most of the time looking up. You have to kink your neck to the side and roll your head to look up.
  • Fun time. The overall museum does not take that long even with how fun / frustrating the puzzles are. Planetarium is where it is at.
  • It was amazing. I recommend it to everyone, even if you don't believe in Science like a lot of Republicans.
  • Super awesome exhibits, especially the star projector which is new and they just put in. Definitely a must see no matter who you are.
  • It's good to still have a place to go for learning, and fun not just phones
