    Talk w/ folks there and go on a clear night. I'm saying be prepared to interact with the really nice and very involved folks that are available.regal if you slow down.

    First time visitor. Planetarium and laser show were very cool. Had sandwiches for lunch and they were surprisingly delicious despite their $10 price tag. On that note, the place was filthy...

    Beautiful view from the observation deck and extremely knowledgable staff. Definitely consider an annual pass and look out for deals on Groupon.

    Call and check for private events before you go. They're open until 10pm on Saturdays but closed early at 5 for a private event.

    Definitely not an entire day affair. See a planetarium show at night and view the telescopes. Seems like that would be more entertaining.
