They were 10 & 8 and love science..I was amazed at the wealth of information and looking up to the roof in comfortable chairs was astounding.

Maybe we came when it was under construction but this place was way overrated. The exhibit hall was the size of a living room with only a handful of dinosaur replicas. We saw the Dinosaur/Pangea film. I was expecting a National Geographic type movie. It was claymation. My 6 year old liked it, though. The customer service is lacking. Badly.... More

We took our 11 year old daughter to see the new dinosaur show and display. The theater is a dome that holds about 75 people and the projections are really clear and crisp. This show we saw is only here for a few months and worth seeing. They also have a display of dinosaurs, and fossils to see that was... More

The current "Sea Rex: Journey to a Prehistoric World" is extremely well done. The computerization is over-the-top amazing for all ages. The movie lasts about 45 minutes and is shown in full high-definition color on the 40-foot domed planetarium theater. Various of the tourist maps have a 2 for 1 coupon. Your ticket also admits you to a very small... More

We don't stop to smell the roses or look at the stars much any more. This is a great experience. During the summer - the heat of this summer - it was a cool, inspiring experience. We did not want to leave!

Recently renovated, CESSE certainly becomes a leader in space education for adults and children alike. Great adventure for the whole family. State of the art planetarium, fascinating exhibits, unbelievably low prices. On the campus of Tyler Junior College, so also easily accessible to local college students. Variety of programming appropriate for all ages. Just a total fun and educational treat... More
