“Kids day out...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

It is a good experience to watch the solar system on a giant dome screen- but the fun ends there. The shows are very technical [my nephew actually fell asleep after a while!!!] & the seats are uncomfortable.
There is much scope for improvement here and the shows must be made more entertaining for kids..

The Planetarium was great. I went during the holidays so it was a little crowded but the exhibits and presentation was very interesting and educational.
