Informative and Entertaining

We went to the Space Planet entry as a family of four. The exhibitions were well laid out in theme areas and included a number of interactive ones. The dome theatre Matariki film and narrative was well put together and informative. A good way to spend an hour or more at the top of the Botanical Gardens.
