NileGuide Expert tip:
For kids, the "Legends of the Night Skies" show on Thursdays and Sundays is a blast.
The Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium is located on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson
, at the northeast corner of Cherry Avenue and University. This family-friendly center is open seven days a week, with planetarium shows available to school and youth groups on the weekdays, and to the general public on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. The family laser light show happens on Thursday nights, while Friday through Sundays is generally reserved for the very popular Pink Floyd laser music show. This is a great place to take the kids, or to spend an evening marveling at the night skies and learning the stories behind the constellations.
