We took the grandkids to see the show at the planetarium. It was a very good outing for them. They enjoyed learning about the universe and the visual graphics were very good.

The TAMIU Planetarium is a great place to take young children and teenagers. It is an intellectually stimulating place sure to spark your child's imagination. It is also situated at a University which can also be inspiring in planting the seeds for a college education.

Older kids (school aged) will really enjoy the experience and learn from it. It is too much for many children under 5.
