The footage was absolutely beautiful. The photographer is an extraordinary man. However, this is not something to do with kids or after a long vacation. It was $15 for adults, $13 for students. We had gotten off a cruise and were exhausted so we thought...More

As we were in Alaska in summer and you can't see the Aurora then it is the next best thing to seeing the real thing. The staff are all very helpful and can explain things very well. All the film is put to music.

OK, so you have spent many years waiting to take photographs of the aurora and would like to share them. I understand and I did enjoy the all too brief scientific explanations at the beginning, but latterly I felt I was being forced to watch...More

For $12 admission you get about 20 minutes of videos of the Aurora Borealis. Little background information or explanation. No narration, just music. Pretty pictures but no "wow". Credits and acknowledgements almost as long as the show. Very disappointing.

We were quite disappointed by this show. While the pictures were beautiful, there was very little commentary. My family and I were looking to learn about it but that’s not what this was about .

Show was okay but would not be in any hurry to get back.$15 a ticket for adults seems a little high to me. Was nice music and was nice scenery, but needed a little more scientific background about Aurora's.
