Not worth the money charged. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice science museum but you easily run out of things to do. The planetarium is nice and comes with a nice story to go along with learning about the stars. There's a health section that I would say pertains to the adul...

While most of the exhibits are geared towards children, there are some things the adults will enjoy too. Personally, I really l...
