We decided to stop here over Spring Break 2014 as a fun and educational activity for our child. After our experience, I doubt my child will ever have any future interest in astronomy. We ended up spending $30 for a family of three to do the tour. They first led us into an old building that was supposed to be an observatory. It didn't even have the telescope in it, just a stand where the telescope should be. We were next shuffled to another building that resembled more of a church. We had to listen to a long, boring story about Mr. Lowell, his life, his wife, his money, yadda yadda yadda. I thought we were supposed to learn about and see Pluto, Mars and the Sun. Nope, just some old photos and antique telescopes. My family and two other groups left after this part even though the tour continued on. I went to ask for my money back since I felt this was a complete misrepresentation of what they were going to offer and learned that conveniently the sale ticket area closes right after the tour begins. Guess they get a lot of complaints about refunds.
