  • Located within the American museum of natural history, this place is a myst Vista. Rich history painstakingly rebuilt to give the current and future generations a peek into the American history. Brilliant true life representation of flora, fauna, people, geography, terrain, climates, culture etc. The entry is free, the contribution is voluntary but the people there kind of coerce you to contribute. The place has parking facilities which is a boon in Central New York.
  • Terrible disappointment. I have seen better shows in small town planetariums. The show was for kids, with absolutely no interesting science or history. Complex topics are touched upon and left without the respect they deserve. Worst of all, the video was nothing exciting. Most of the show was just points of light representing distances between galaxies - very little actual space, planets, etc. Visuals were boring and uninspired. This is nowhere near the quality and value one should get at this museum.
