It's average if you've been to any big planetarium before. If not - you're gonna experience something new and I definitely recommend it (when else to go to such place if not on vacation, right?). The video was NASA relatively old video.

If you have been to any nice planetariums in the states I would definitely skip this one. It could be nice for kids, but for adults it's pretty much just watching a short youtube documentary in a nice dome. Nothing special in terms of interaction...More

We popped in while we were in the area. It's a sweet (small) museum but absolutely everything is in Spanish. As the admission isn't the cheapest we expected to see some English floating around. They take student discounts if you have a card.
