So this experience will not be for everyone. However if you like stars, space and Astro concepts then this is very good.
There are 2 negatives that i’ll start with

We almost missed the booking as it was 10am and Google has the head office address not the actual observatory address! Very informative tour, kids enjoyed it, not sure it's worth the price being charged, but it's a one off experience. Address really used was...More
