Seeing the starry night sky in Arizona has been on the bucket list for a long time. I took my boys there (10 and 12).
We arrived at 8:30 ish. It might be a good idea to bring a flashlight and a warm jacket. It was quite cold outside in April, and you will be standing in long lines to see the night sky through the telescopes. When you do, really you see some very bright stars, but nothing like the amazing milky way galaxy pictures one sees in advertisements.
What I enjoyed the most was the presentation on the night time constellations. That was interesting and well done, and my two boys who both have ADHD and autism, and can't stand listening to other people for any amount of time, stayed through the whole presentation.
The one thing that would have made it better is slightly lower price point.
Still, it was a good experience.
