NileGuide Expert Says:
Great learning experience for children with hands-on, sensory-driven exhibits.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Wear comfortable shoes because you'll be stopping and going throughout the center.
Three floors of exhibits include the popular Outer Space Place -- home of the Hubble Space Telescope National Visitor Center and Space Link, which offers a live connection to NASA -- and the towering dinosaurs of DinoQuest. Sometimes the exhibits are too crowded or of limited interest, but the IMAX theater and planetarium are always worth a visit. The IMAX movies, which range from Beauty and the Beast to Space Station 3D, are so popular that extra screenings are held Friday and Saturday evenings, for $8 per ticket. The stars are on display at the Davis Planetarium and the Crosby Ramsey Memorial Observatory; the observatory is free to the public on Friday nights, weather permitting (call for hours). Admission to exhibits, the planetarium, and IMAX is $8 on Fridays 5 to 8pm.
