Everything at the planetarium was in working condition. So many places you go the majority of the cool things have something malfunctioning. Amazing place for kids to be entertained for HOURS, but also very educational. Plus it is FREE!

This place has amazing interactive displays. As an adult with my wife we felt like kids running around to see everything. The price of admission includes an IMAX show as well.
