My wife and I spent about 3 hours at the museum and it was fantastic. The special exhibits were a little pricey but worth it! The planetarium show that we saw was an amazing 20 minutes. Really enjoyed it all.

Great museum, really neat displays. Staff gets you really involved in the action. And a beautiful view of the mountains from a walkway in front. And bonus, the cafeteria food is awesome--the grilled sandwiches were yummy & reasonable.
