If ever the weather sets back your plans to stroll around palatial gardens, a visit to this kid friendly space museum is a great alternative for a half day activity. In a true space odyssey, kids can marvel at the wonders of the universe projected onto the walls of the Discovery Sphere Planetarium.

They will be amazed at the night sky as it reveals infinite stars and the fascinating Milky Way. All the children's space questions will be answered by the planetarium's friendly on-site specialists, or the latest digital animation systems.
