    Great science museum. The kids touch area was fantastic. Don't miss all the stiff outside.

    Not as great as expected. Went with 6 and 2.5 yr old. They loved the dinosaurs, fossil search and panning for gems.

    It was interesting. Wish they had more interactive things for kids. My 2.5 y/o had fun, but it is a 45 minute ride for may be an hour's worth of entertainment.

    it's not advertised on the website that I could find but Tellus does reciprocal membership admission with other science museums. Bring your card and you should get free admission.

    When in the fossil room, don't be afraid to ask the staff for specific fossils if you can't find what you want.

    Great place overall...Do not waste your time on the "planet thrill ride" movie in the planetarium. Hopefully some of the other films will be better - be early to sit in the middle!

    The spacepark planetarium show is really cool but the dizziness is no joke.

    Great for the kiddos. The gem panning/dinosaur dig is tucked in the back. Make sure you find it. The kids will thank you.
