    Been here many times, first time I was probably 8-9. Great place to learn about Science as a kid or with kids. See the Space Needle too.

    We visited on a Saturday afternoon and thought the experience was lackluster at best. Most of the exhibits were either outdated or broken. Save your money and skip the Halloween planetarium show.

    Laser show is a major improvement over what I've seen two years ago. Highly recommended. They could turn up the volume, though.

    The lasers shows are fun, but be prepared for some extremely loud bass. It will rock your body, literally. Consider bringing earplugs.

    Save time and buy tickets online (at home or on your phone). No need to print tickets, they can do that for you at the Will Call window. Lines were reeeally long when we went.
