Amazing place! You can go alone, with friends or with kids. Very colorful, hands-on type of science museum. I liked specially the space/astronauts area. Check to see the temporary exibitions. It's worth it!

Besides the regular features of planetarium and IMAX, the rotating exhibits are fantastic...Seen Harry Potter, Titanic and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Make sure you have your good walking shoes on!
