Been there many times with the family, both on a field trip during the day with the my son's class, and at night to check out the stars. Be sure to look at the weather report to make sure it is a clear night. The best thing is it is a fun place to go to at night, especially when there are no kid movies out and you are racking your brain for something to do. Kid's love the big Imax style movies and gift shop, I loved the cool old telescopes.
Went to see this museum while exploring what Oakland has to offer. This place is definitely worth going back to see many times...lots to see, good presentations and nice surroundings. Got some education of our local history!
Visited this museum of art with my son. It was ok but not much to do. We spent 3 hrs here and took lots of photos.
