There were only five of us during the 'show'. It was pretty well done and there was a lot to see. Took a five year old, think that this is a little young - probably need to be 10+ to truly enjoy.

The museum was average they had a couple of nice displays. We saw the "show" a primitive light display type experience that was worth the $8.00 admission fee. But the highlight was looking through the telescope and seeing Mars and Saturn. Must do that!
