    the Rose Center for Earth & Space was a very nice place to visit. The planetarium and space exhibits were quite informative. I recommend for grandparents and grandchildren.

    Excellent sky; well organized shows if a bit biased towards sensationalism. Oh, for the good old days of the knowledgeable live lecturer, but canned shows can do when they are this well done. Basement area does an especially good job on space travel though the "weight on other worlds" gimmick has outlived its day.

    The Rose Center for Earth & Space is at the American Museum of Natural Museum. This is where the planetarium is. I highly suggest coming here on your visit and buying the ticket to watch the show. It’s amazing and like being in space. It’s narrated by Jodie Foster and other celebrities like Tom Hanks and Whoopie Goldberg. A must see for space enthusiasts, kids, and all those curious about science.

    Formerly known as the Hayden Planetarium. The planetarium is now part of a larger collective which includes the Scales of the Universe Walkway, and the Hall of Planet Earth.

    This is a very historic asset. I loved the planetarium. It is a must for astronomy lovers. The location is great. And you can walk in the park for real stargazing afterwards!
