"LodeStar Astronomy Center" Museums Tip by lovemycacti

Museums, Albuquerque: 23 reviews and 32 photos

Visiting the astronomy center is a wake-up call. You suddenly realize how little of a "fish" you are in a giant system of "oceans." Awe-inspiring, slightly frightening at the realization of the birth of our planet and the solar system, a trip to the LodeStar Astonomy Center makes for terrific discussion if nothing else!

The light shows are spectacular, averaged priced, and a great way to spend two hours. Conviently located at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Center, shop in the StarWorks astronomy store for celestial gifts.

Open daily from 9am-5pm, exept Christmas, Thanksgiving, and non-holiday Mondays in January and September.
