Great place and underrated. Spend the time and go when they have the observatory open in the evening. Take a look at the stars and listen to the educated, plain talking docents

There seemed to be many things to partake in here, but we just visited the Planetarium. We enjoyed the show a great deal.

Unfortunately this is the final year for the holiday lights. We all have enjoyed the lights as an annual family tradition. Make sure to park and let the kids walk through the lights. And get your picture with Santa.

I would say the show is great for all ages. In your case, the deciding factor would be the general nature of your youngest. If the child is fascinated enough to sit though it, or more prone to wanting to run around the... More
