On Tue the shows were $1. We went to 2 different shows. The shows were interesting and enjoyed the theater seating. They did warn you that could cause dizziness but told you how to stop it.

Super nice folks. Planetarium show was plodding. Exhibit small. Clean restrooms. May be more fun for young children.

We enjoyed three amazing shows in the dome theatre. The attendants were super nice and helpful. The rock and gem collections was fabulous. The young man narrating the opening & closing of the films was very good. We are looking forward to visiting again.
