Planetarium offers a variety for all ages; Science Museum is interesting for children.

Both attractions can be very interesting, but I don't think either quite justifies the single entry fee. However, once you add a second attraction...or an extra planetarium show... read more

Both attractions can be very interesting, but I don't think either quite justifies the single entry fee. However, once you add a second attraction...or an extra planetarium show, then it averages out to a good value. Some of the planetarium shows are more suited to young families (Perfect Little Planet), while others are geared more towards teens and adults (Back... More

Had an outstanding visit to the Planetarium/Science Gallery with Kevin as our guide. He is upbeat and personable. He makes the tour/show exceptional! We learned about the aurora during the planetarium show. It was very interesting. Saw a moon rock in the gallery (probably the highlight for us). This is a small museum and was not crowded during our visit.... More

This Muesum is very good for children. It is physically and mentally engaging. Our 8 year old grandson enjoyed it very much. 45 minutes to one hour is enough time to cover it. I found the Lego section a waste of space. I really did not see any child spend that much time there, other than passing by.

Seeing all the stars were neat but it seemed like we were just watching a commercial for the google X project. When the speaker was talking it was difficult to hear what was being said. They named a lot of constellations and they were all pointed out. I would of like more interactive information about the stars and planets that... More

Exhibits obviously older but interesting. Planetarium Nasdaq due to disrepair and strong smell of mold due to water damage. Deserves a refurbishment, as the displays, especially of native culture and local wildlife ecosystem are really informative.

Wonderful time spent walking through diorama's and beautiful displays of the geological and chronological time line of life in the North Americas. Spent three hours enjoying all the displays and we were especially impressed with the full size replica of the "Nonsuch" the first western trade ship for the Hudson Bay's Company. Certainly a must see if you are visiting... More
