It's a regular everyday planetarium, but things there are a little dated. Still worth a visit though!

It's kind of an older planetarium, but sometimes newer isn't always better. Go on an evening when they are showing the night sky. Your kids will enjoy it.

We went to see hurricane on the bayou and really enjoyed it. The film was interesting, the staff friendly and everything very clean and tidy. Had a great time!

I read that this was the largest planetarium in the SE part of the United States, and I was excited to take my children there. I thought a Planetarium meant that you looked up/learned about the stars, but this was old and was not impressive. The main attraction seemed to be to sell tickets to watch certain movies within the Planetarium. It was also very hot inside as if the air conditioner was not working. I will say that the ladies who worked there were very courteous and helpful and we enjoyed speaking with them.

My husband and I go to the Planetarium every once in a while to watch the movies, see the stars, and gaze at the planets. This is one museum that stays open til almost midnight on some nights, so it makes a great date night! We can go and get a nice dinner, and then head over to the Planetarium to get lost under the sea, under the stars, or to discover new lands that we didn't know existed! It's a really fun experience.
