It was a first for me and my family. A good experience. Viewed Planet Jupiter and the stars. It has an observatory deck, a theater and many more. We had fun. Would definitely visit again.

I loved my little side trip to this planetarium. The view from the high deck is good. To a few panoramic shots. The displays are nice. This is no Kennedy Space Center but you knew it wasn't going to be all that. Still, the AC...More

I have no complaints at all, when the entrance is free and you can have fun while having a knowledge with your kids. The show really interesting and my kid could ride a capsule space for free after the show. All was great

I can't remember if there was a little slope to get into where the tickets are to inside - I suggest you email them directly
