“Something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

We were interested primarily in the Star Trek exhibit but were pleasantly surprised to see all the other activities and displays to visit. There are things to do and see for all types of visitors. The planetarium show was especially enjoyable and educational.

“Bring the Kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

This place is cool. Bring the kids for the special interactive science displays. Then visit whatever the current main attraction is (and they're usually very interesting and creative). Finish it of with a movie at the Omnimax. Don't forget to go over I64/Hwy. 40 pedestrian walkway to the Planetarium and use the speed gun radars to see how fast traffic is going.

“We're members”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

We have enjoyed the activities that come with our membership. The omnimax theatre is nice if you can pick and choose which shows you go to see. I also did the overnight "camp out" with my son which culminated with falling asleep under the stars in the planetarium.
