I've been here to see both Wonder Woman, ( 2 times) and Transformers. It's a beautiful theater and great place to learn about different things. The staff is very friendly. A great place to bring your kids or grandkids.

volunteers and staff went all out to make sure their many visitors had a great time. The IMAX theater is loads of fun and the gift shop is unique. Where else can you get NASA freeze dried ice cream!

We spent a great deal of time here - wonderful IMAX Theater and the Planetarium is also a great place to learn a great deal abut our universe. You need to just kick back and let the place wash over you.

We spent some solid time here learning about the planets in the Center's Surround-Sound theatre. Truly Amazing. The guides in the Center taught us so much about NASA and the planets. Things we didn't know--and the theater is really spectacular.
