We spent the day here going through multiple exhibits. We purchased on of the IMAX 3-D presentations (Jerusalem) and was quite impressed with the theater and quality. This place is spacious and has a large cafeteria so yo never feel crowded or confined.

Amazing space exhibits.. Very busy busy attraction though, plan to spend 15 minutes finding a parking spot (this was on a Tuesday, 12pm). Also plan to spend time waiting in line. Buy your tickets online! I recommend all space planetariums!

This was one of the best exhibits in years! Having been to Israel last October, I found the exhibit to be quite accurate and covered many historically significant place throughout the region. Very well done.

There are parking places both on the streets and within the museum area. I'm not sure about the possibility to park overnight and for this point, I would suggest to call the museum staff and ask them for suggestions.
