Planetariums are hard to find these days. This was one of the reasons we came to Rochester for the weekend. We enjoyed the narration, and the experience. Building is a little dated, but felt like we were kids again looking up in the night sky....More

A trip to the Stasenburgh planetarium is always enjoyable no matter what age of your guests. My girls love it here and it's always a new experience so do their grandparents.

Not the biggest museum in town, but well appointed and fun for kids 3-12. The gift shop has some cool and unique items. The IMAX theater is the best feature for folks of all ages.

The facility is top of the line Planetarium, pick the right show, some are geared to children some to adults. We learned alot about Jupiter during our visit. Next door to the Science museum so you can combine the trip.
