Summer Fun: The Arizona Science Center
Re-Opening of the Dorrance Planetarium
Did you know that the AZ Science Center was the first science center in the WORLD to showcase a state-of-the-art NanoSeam dome, and now only one of five in the United States? My husband and I took our daughter the other day and it was AMAZING! We watched 3 of the 6 planetarium shows that they offer. We decided that the best value for us was to become a member. There are different membership levels, so we chose the Basic Plus, which is good for the year for 4, at $85 and $40 additional for the planetarium pass. The only thing we have to pay extra for is if we want to see an IMAX, which we also get a discount for being a member. If you are an educator or have AAA there is an additional discount for membership. The pass also gets you into other museums in Flagstaff, Tucson and others all over the country. The year pass gets you free admission for 4, and only one person who’s name is on the pass has to be with the pass. So, I can invite a different mom and kid each time we go. I have a feeling we will frequent the center often since there is so much to do and see and its indoors to escape the heat! (in fact I could have used a sweater, its quite chilly inside!)
We also ate lunch there and it was very good and the prices were reasonable!
Thank you for visiting Best of Both Worlds AZ.
