They have many different types of shows throughout the year, but there Christmas show is really worth while. It traces the biblical and historical significance of the Star of Bethlehem.

The show about Mars was timely, with the movie "The Martian" playing. We stayed for the second show on weather, too. It was cloudy, so the observatory was closed, but I'm sure it would have been enjoyable, too. It was something different for a Saturday...More
