Hadn't been to a planetarium in decades. This was a nice cool, inexpensive stop near the end of a long, hot road trip. Even had a few minutes extra to visit the herpetarium, hurrah!
Definitely worth stopping, if you have time. The show was ok, but the host was very engaging for our 6&9 year old boys. We walked through the habitats before hitting the road again and enjoyed the break from driving.
Such a wonderful place to visit. Lots of great hiking trails and beautiful scenery
