Facility:Astronaut Memorial Planetarium & Observatory
Description:With a large-format movie theater that plays science films to the public and to school groups, exhibit halls featuring hands-on science and historical artifacts from human spaceflight and a gift shop that has plenty of items ranging in price from a few cents to a few dozen dollars, the Planetarium and Observatory is a must-see! Of course it is the premier planetarium in East-Central Florida. And don't forget that they have a rooftop observatory featuring a very large telescope which is free and open to the public every weekend. A classroom seating 35 students and a portable "starlab" planetarium round out the varied spaces in their building. Join them for sky shows, films, or many of the laser show events!
