To be honest, we have only been here on Spooky Science Saturday when we have a booth. There are lots of artifacts and displays here. The staff is welcoming and the grounds are beautiful!

Defiantly do the planetarium show. The opening on the seasonal stars was great. We were all looking for constallations that evening. The exhibit on fetus development was especially intriguing for the expectant parents in the group. We also enjoyed all the travel collections.

Going to the Kingman is always a fun time for our family, we especially love the Spooky Science event which occurs around Halloween. The Kingman is a must with family fun for everyone.
