When to visit

Come on a non-holiday weekday because holidays and weekends can be crowded. To mitigate the weekend crush, arrive at opening time.


Planetarium tickets go quickly. The same is sometimes also true for IMAX and special event tickets. Buy them as far in advance as possible, especially for weekend and peak-season performances.
