We were surprised to find a planetarium at this seaside town! It has a couple of really good shows, very informative, and some live events regularly. The science museum would be a good place for elementary kids. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

Good for youngsters with interest in the heavens and a way to beat the heat on a hot summers day. Smallish planetarium with rudimentary program on the our solar system. Friendly staff makes it well worthwhile for the amateur astronomer.

Fabulous! Programming laser lights to Pink Floyd music really unbelievable. You should consider this fantastic opportunity and the Museum of Coastal Carolina at Ocean Isle Beach for your next vacation.

We enjoyed the Beatles laser show tonight. Us oldsters love Beatles music and hearing some classic songs along with cool psychedelic laser lights was really fun! The price of $9.50 seemed maybe a bit high but it's a very unique experience. Our three-year-old grandson loved...More
