“Excellent time at the Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

We visited with our 13 yr granddaugher and 9 yr old grandson. We all totally enjoyed it. The interactive Childrens Museum was a huge hit. We were not sure if both kids would be equally impressed, but they were! It was pricey (over $70 for 3 adults and 2 kids), however, it provided three hours of enjoyment for all.

“Seeing the Stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Sometimes the shows are a little outdated, but the experience is always an experience. The presenters keep it interesting and the pay off is always the view of the night skies. A great place for a different experience and a little learning.

“Excellent Features.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Just added modern new Digital equipment and is now as good as any planetarium presentation. Reasonably priced, comfortable seating and modern surroundings.Adjacent to Concert Hall and Museum of Man and Nature also worth seeing.

“Getting an upgrade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The venerable planetarium is getting some modern upgrades. The Science center continues to evolve. Prices are reasonable and it's a great place to let the kids explore. Get the combo ticket with the Museum upstairs and make it a day. The only thing missing is a decent place to eat onsite.
