Fun to watch

Sit under the stars in the planetarium as the speaker describes the different stars and planets. I have gone there since I was a kid.

We attended a planetarium show here and really enjoyed the presentation. I am pretty sure it was only around $2 and at that price, we will likely do it again.

MHCC Planetarium is run by very knowledgeable and fun people. It is smaller than some which makes it more enjoyable.

It's a good way to get acquainted with the wonders of the universe, provided you explain to your children before you go that the billions of years they talk... More

Nice place to become familiar with the stars and constellations we are not able to see very well in our light polluted skies. l
