Even though this is a small planetarium but it still has good exhibits and great shows.It is a great place to take your kids if they are interested in Space & Stars! Plus their tiny gift shop is packed with cool gift ideas!

Hi, Thanks for the inquiry! We are fully wheelchair-accessible, but scooters can be a tight fit in the theater so we usually recommend people park scooters and transfer to our seats when possible!
