We went there for a date, and found it was mainly geared towards children. Beautiful museum, they had a few exhibits that were adult/ teenager friendly with some great information. The IMAX dome was gigantic. We will be going back!

Hello! If you visit MOSI's website, and go to the red "What To Do Tab" you will see "Planetarium and Space Programs" on the left-hand side. This will give you a description of all of the shows!
