This is not a museum, it is a movie theater with a few toy rocket displays in the lobby. The planetarium is only open when they haven't rented the room for meeting space. Skip this one unless your coming to watch a movie.

The prices are reasonable and the popcorn is good. The seating is comfortable. The movie screen is worth the admission!!

We started with a program that talked about news of the solar systems. There were some demonstrations of scientific phenomena relating to space. We then went on to the IMAX theater for a movie on National Parks.
