Overall, a good trip. I called ahead to get tickets; so we set foot in the attraction ready to go. Unfortunately, the 3 tickets we got--lab, planetarium, and movie were spaced really close together--2, 3, and 4 pm. We got at the front of the line for the lab and got good seats; unlike a movie, they only open the theater 5 minutes before the show and there are no ropes for an organized line. But then, we were last out and at the end of the mob for the planetarium line. Would be nice if there was more time to give everyone a chance for good seats and a roped off path instead of a gigantic mob heading for the door.
The lab was Fabulous! I learned alot and the kids were entertained while the young man explained physics as he lit things on fire!
And the same poor guy worked the lab and the planetarium, running back and forth--He did a GREAT job! I found myself getting lost in the plantarium show; they were talking about constellations in the stars above, but the vast majority I was looking around to see what he was talking about. Then we went to a movie about dinosaurs, good no problems. And I bought a large pop for $2--Great deal!
The actual mueseum was interesting; but difficult to navigate. There were 2 turn-styles; we tried one repeatedly until we figured out it was the exit (not marked); then we wandered a bit though the exhibit. I wish they had personal audio like at Union Station in Kansas City. Had a hard time finding the exit as well.
Overall the kids (10 and 11) had a great time; not your average Saturday for us and worth going back.
