Small museum but engaging. There were good short movies held in the planetarium. Warning, if you don’t like kids - I recommend that you avoid these movies when kids are around. Part of their fun is responding to the movies and most parents would encourage...More

Very small and poorly run. The planetarium show is from the 80's. Also, they allow children to talk through the entire show. Why are 2 year olds at a show on black holes making so much noise that no one can hear the narrator? Yes,...More

The museum is located in East Stroudsburg University, It has a nice little natural history exhibit with animals from different parts of the world. The planetarium show is 30 minutes but a little dated. The admission is $ 6 for both.

The students who work here are very friendly and informative. The museum is very small, but I liked it, and recommend it. The planetarium was fun too.
