I wish one paid a single price and that included visiting everything. Something like "you can visit a, b, and c for free", "a, b. c, d, e, and f" for $10, etc.

Whoever they have a new show in town I try to get out and see it. They usually have quite a few different ones each year. The facility is always clean and staff is friendly. It's affordable to visit solo or with a group. The IMAX has some great shows, I plan to go again many times this year! I... More

We took our 5 year old daughter to the museum where we found that only few activities suits her; the price is expensive given the learning experience we expected; the place suits older children, teenagers and adults..

It's really big but it was overpriced for what you get. The only cool thing about it was the space theatre

My boyfriend and I went here for an IMAX movie they always have a wide variety of movies to watch and it isn't too expensive. They always are running a variety of different attractions that are good for kids, adults and families. Always a good learning experience and fun too!

We went here on a Sunday afternoon before an event that evening. The Planitarium show was okay. I thought the show was a little Un Scientific as it Had space ships that were making Noise in the Vacume of Space😆 Plan on 2-3 hours to see everything. Also the Bathroom was Exceptionally Clean! WAY TO GO GUYS!!!

Various exhibitions, all of them very interactive, include one temporary exhibition, one on the human body, a DIY science garage, an exhibition on the Earth system, one on space, one gallery for toddlers, a planetarium, IMAX theatre, cafeteria and observatory. The observatory is only open when it's... More
