The primary attraction is the domed theater which shows different movies throughout the day. We watched one movie about engineers solving problems which was both educational and inspiring. When we visited, the movies were only $5 for seniors. There were so few displays that I...More

a variety of shows are available. the kids absolutely loved it!! I unfortunately get motion sickness and felt a little queezy. So take some dramamine before you go if you get motion sickness.

Super nice folks. Planetarium show was plodding. Exhibit small. Clean restrooms. May be more fun for young children.

We enjoyed three amazing shows in the dome theatre. The attendants were super nice and helpful. The rock and gem collections was fabulous. The young man narrating the opening & closing of the films was very good. We are looking forward to visiting again.

As far as a visit to the planetarium is free other than events. Events are fund raisers. I suggest that you contact the Center for Earth and Space Science for correct information, as I was simply a visitor and am not... More
