    I couldn't afford to like my day at the planetarium. You have to take out a second mortgage to pay for the desirable exhibits. Otherwise, you get pretty much nothing but some rocks to look at for your $27!!!! WHAT A RIP OFF!!!

    THE SHOW WAS FANTASTIC, THOUGHT IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN LONGER IN MY OPINION. THE GIFT SHOP WAS REALLY COOL (THEY HAD 10 DIFFERENT ROBOT KITS, ELECTRON LAMPS, AND ROCK CANDY IF YOU DO STOP BY THE GIFT SHOP BRING $30 OR MORE FOR THE REALLY FLASHY STUFF. IF YOU'RE A BOOK PERSON $15 SHOULD DO THE TRICK.) BUT A LITTLE EXPENSIVE. HOWEVER THE SHOW IS A MUST SEE. (THE DARK UNIVERSE.) I INTEND TO GO BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    Great experience for the young and not so young. The new show narrated by Neil Degrase Tyson is great and very entertaining. Our 4 year old nephew was oohing and ahhing the whole time. Plus it kept him engaged for a half hour which is unique. Great stop when visiting the museum.
