We visited over the weekend on a Saturday and loved our experience. The waiting are with information was a bonus also. The man who spoke during the show was knowledgeable and we left with new information we didn't now about. A great outing!
Its cool here and can teach you alot about our galaxy. Unfortunately I didnt get to really watch one of the evening shows as my kids started getting rowdy and I didnt want them to disturb everyone else in the room. But we still got to walk around and read everything there was, and I learnt a thing or two about the stars.
Go early, otherwise you'll struggle to find a park as it can get busy in the weekends. Such a cool place to visit with little ones. Ive got a toddler and primary school aged children, and they absolutely loved it here, especially in the stardome. Its a very sensual place for kids with lots of things to see and touch and learn, even as an adult you can learn something here too. The staff are patient and tolerant of noisy children and kids running around, which is good.
I went here last here and a nice place as you get to learn about new things and also enjoyable as well and we spent $6 dollar each and was nice and enjoyable to spend the night relaxing over there. I would recommend getting there early as you may have to look for parking if you are late so enjoy the show and use the bookme site to get a deal.
The museum is small but interesting and costs only 2 NZD.
The shows are really nice: images are wonderful and the talk is detailed, funny and not boring. Good also if you're not that deeply into astronomic things.
If the weather is bad they give you a ticket to come back and use the telescopes.
I'll go back soon!
Went there for the Grand Tour of the Solar System and was a nice experience, very informative.
Tickets were sold out, however, staff was kind to put us on waitlist and luckily we got seats.
Also got to use the telescope to view the night sky which was great.
Went to the open day so was only $2 per head, a great introduction to planets, stars and the universe for the little ones.
Nicely setup but not a huge amount to do other than the planetarium show - although the kids could spend hours sending the ball down the gravity well!
