“Free science for kids”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Your 3-9 year olds will have fun here and its free. The planetarium shows are good and cheap. An hour is enough to see it all, but you can spend another hour hiking through the forest in back of the center.

“Great place to explore”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Found the science center by mistake and glad we did. The kids loved the place and I loved the fact that it was free and you can leave a donation if you'd like. We spent around an hour here just walking around. The kids especially liked the different species of frogs and snakes. Its definitely worth the stop if you're in the area.

“quick place”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

The place was small and easy to go through. The star gazing was awesome for the little ones too. I would only visit this place one time.

“Fun thing for a Friday night”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

This was my first visit here & I would love to go back. We went on a Friday night when they have music & dancing. It was fun watching everyone dance "old school". Food was delicious. Very limited drink choices. Food & drinks expensive. But overall, neat experience!

The planetarium experience is an awesome experience. Well worth a visit for any avid stargazer or to introduce kids to science.
