Such a pleasure to spend time I the exhibits. Lots of hands on for kids. The movie was great in the round. We were the only ones there so got the best seats and got to ask all kinds of questions about the sky and constellations after the movie. The college kids working the movie were super nice and knowledgeable... More

I was so pleasantly surprised! I have lived in the area for 4 years, and never heard anyone mention this, and I don't understand why. (Maybe the name throws people off - it sounds so scholarly!) I went with a school group of 3rd graders, and look forward to returning with family. I have been to many big-city science museums... More

My kids love going here! It's so educational and fun! After watching a video in the dome you can go do hands on things relating to the video you watched.

This out of the way museum is a great place to spend a few hours, especially for children. We were surprised to see the impressive movie theater that shows different movies throughout the day. The exhibits were a little on the slim side, in fact you can see virtually every exhibits in less than one hour, hopefully there are plans... More

Visited today on spring break with the kids age 9 and 12. Wasn't our first choice but looking for something inside because of the weather. Quite unexpected and everyone had a great time with the experiments and the shows. Glad we went! Great value too.

I grew up coming here on school field trips. It has been expanded and remodeled and is truly a treasure of a museum for our size city. Love to lean back in the chairs and let the stars soar overhead.

We had our second visit to CESSE (the Planetarium) for the Valentine Day "Love Under The Stars". There is no way to make it too superlative. What a wonderful experience, and the Staff are so nice, accommodating and gracious! This was a couples only event to celebrate the history of the lore of Love Under the Stars.

This exhibit was fantastic at both Discovery Science Place and CESSE. Movies in the dome at CESSE a plus; very fun and informative too.

With kids ages 9, 13, and 17 it can be difficult to find something we can all enjoy together and the CESSE has been the perfect place for us. There are about 5 different shows that run back to back each day. New shows are added each year. Once you pay, you can see as many of the shows as... More

We enjoyed the planetarium and the Da Vinci exhibit. The young lady with the exhibit was very well informed and seemed excited to show us the exhibits. We only had a few hours to stay, but you could spend almost all day here. The exhibition of Goodnight Rose City was OK. It was nice to see a local children's book... More
