Julia's Review:
   My mom and dad took me to the science museum in Houston this winter, and I convinced them to get tickets to the planetarium. We had learned about stars in school and the different constellations, and I thought it'd be fun to go there. I'm really glad my mom and dad said yes to the Burke Baker Planetarium. I learned about the northern lights, black holes, and lots of outer space things like that. I can't wait until we visit the planetarium again!

   Oh - and you shouldn't go if it is cloudy or a full moon!

Mom's Notes:
   We decided to visit Houston on a day trip and wanted to teach our children something, not just visit a theme park or mall. We researched museums on the internet and decided on a science museum with activities for children. The Burke Baker Planetarium is a part of the Houston Science of Natural History and is well worth the additional admission fee. There are not a lot of planetariums around, and this one is rated one of the best in the United States. They have a variety of shows in the planetarium, so each visit can be different from the last one.

  The planetarium offers a great learning experience for all ages. This is definitely a place that we will be visiting more often, and are considering becoming members of the museum just because of the planetarium.

Julia Tip:   When you visit the Burke Baker Planetarium, you should be prepared to have a great time. Even if you don't like learning about science, it will seem more like a movie about outer space than a science class. The planetarium is really dark so you can see the stars in the sky so don't be surprised when the lights go out in the beginning.
