We enjoyed three amazing shows in the dome theatre. The attendants were super nice and helpful. The rock and gem collections was fabulous. The young man narrating the opening & closing of the films was very good. We are looking forward to visiting again.

This place never disappoints. We love the museum and the planetarium and visit frequently with family. Kids love it. It is so nice to have a planetarium in the area. We will continue to support it. VERY fun place, and educational.

My 6 year old at the time loved the video they were showing. It was fun to watch a movie on the ceiling.
