It is totally cool place to visit - entertainment together with science. This place will be interesting as for adult, as for children. Unreal feelings just watching stars and the sky.

We went there in the afternoon, so missed the time for star gazing, but watched a short film instead. Very attentive staff, nice atmosphere and educational content. Would return again.
