Very nice place.

It was a cold day, so I was happy to find an indoor place to take my nephew to. The museum is very clean and very inviting.

We saw a nice show about not trashing the planet. It was geared towards children. It was a cartoon but it was very cute and fun to see all the kids around us enjoying it.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Planetarium and plan to return. We went as a couple, but it's perfect for families, solos and couples. It's very educational, while also being fun, engaging and multi-sensory. The prices are reasonable and well worth it.

Its good for the youngsters because its hands on, but they won't appreciate the science and history as much as older kids and adults would. I dont know why parents bring their toddlers cause they don't understand anything, there kind of a nuisance when all they do it run around. This isnt a playground.

We used to go much oftener when the children were small. We still try to go once a year and we enjoy it very much. Always entertaining while you learn a bit of science. Very good place for the family with children.

It was cute, nice new and clean, Shows at the time I went were a bit on the boring side. All and all worth 5 bucks and a nice way to spend a half hour is already at the MOSH
