    Stare at the night sky at the Davis Planetarium, or check out the Imax Theater with its five-story screen. The Center also has kid-friendly interactive exhibits. Read more: http://bit.ly/OJ8QKc

    If you prefer to park on the street: 2hr pkg & 4hr nearby. Get 4hr ticket @ the machine directly across the street from the group entrance, then drive over to the 2hr area where there's more space.

    You can bring guests on your family membership if you have extra spots. Caregiver/Babysitter can take the kids even if primary member isn't going- you just have to send a note!
