Stars in my Backyard was cute, geared for children. Just be aware that the handicapped drop off area, while a shorter distance than the main ramp, is quite steep. Very difficult with a wheelchair and would equally be so with a walker. I would have...More

Hello, Were you instructed to use the back parking lot by one of our staff members? That is an employee lot, and the hill is quite steep. (The handicapped symbol is for the far side of the lot and applies to the administration building) For...More

I have visited this planetarium several times and have never been disappointed. I am only interested in the adult shows, never having visited with children, and encourage you to check their programs to see what fits the bill for you.

It’s okay, small though. Not comfortable but informative. Great for young ones. Not so much for the elderly. Large hill or steps to climb to get the siteMore

We took our grandson to a kids event. There were activities available prior to the planetarium show. Fun evening!

Toddler loved the kid's show. Held their attention, just the right length of time. Kid's ticket, though, was 70 percent of adult ticket. Bathrooms in building, small displays in lobby and small gift shop as well. Plenty of parking.

We enjoyed our visit with our three kids. They were mesmerized by the planetarium and learning about the night sky. It is a good weekend activity because it is relatively inexpensive, easy to find parking, and educational.
