Fodor's Review

Displayed here in all its nickel-iron glory is Ireland's largest meteorite, an astonishing 4.5 billion years old and weighing 24 stone (336 pounds). Elsewhere, find a spaceship, satellite models, and the Digital Theater with Digistar 5—sit back and navigate the night sky in the company of experts. Children's activities include building and launching rockets. Outside, stroll through the solar system and the Milky Way at the huge scale model of the universe.
