We attended a birthday party at a local planetarium that hosts both private and public shows, housed within a middle school. It was a very fun and educational birthday party.
Since it was in the middle of the day, we didn’t use their telescopes on their observation decks, but we explored the weather station, used interactive NASA internet displays and watched images linked to NASA television.
We saw a simulated sky show using their domed ceiling and projector.
We brought home a few cool educational toys.
And played with them.
I was very surprised at how inexpensive it was to rent the planetarium out for a birthday party and I’m planning on reserving it for Little E’s birthday party in a few months.
