We were not able to catch a show because of it be booked for a party or class or something. Kinda disappointed. Hung out and played at some of the educational stations they had though, that was cool.

Saw the Pink Floyd Laser Light show here 2 weeks ago. It was extremely cool - very well done. Planetarium itself has a few little interesting exhibits but nothing much besides inside the auditorium itself. I hope to go see more shows there.
