  • 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.

  • 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
