Can't think of anything to do on a rainy day! Go to the planetarium! Kids and adults will equally enjoy this experience!

Spent the evening of May 17 2013 here, a really great experience, 3D in a different way! The Chronos Space Simulator star projector showed us the starry sky above us, and how it would look at different times of the year

This should not be confused with a big time planetarium like the Adler in Chicago, but if you get a chance to catch an exhibit or show here do not miss it. The seating is very comfortable and the people in charge really know their stuff. The hands-on show for the transit of Venus across the face of the sun... More

if you want to have a cosmic experience, visit the planetarium. the experience is surreal and gives you that kind of funky out of body experience. If you are prone to motion sickness, wait to eat afterwards. Brothers restaurant stays open late and is a short drive away,
