Great experience with the family. Lots of interactive experiments and staff to explain to children. We watch two shows that were excellent and very informative. We plan to come back for an evening to check out the Stars. I highly recommend to take your kids here.

The process with redeeming the membership has been horrible to say the least. The groupon people were no help when the redeeming instructions didn't work, and the Chbit people started out ok but at this time I still don't know if they have us as members. I've called and they never called back. In fact this survey reminds me to try and get ahold of them again. It's hard to do while I am at work. This is making me think twice before doing this with Groupon again.

From Our Editors

From the spectacular and grandiose, such as far-reaching telescopes that penetrate the cosmos and bring back crystal-clear views of the stars, to the most curious minutiae, think “space toilets” like those used by astronauts on the International Space Station & Chabot Space & Science Center captures the science, mystery, and grandeur of outer space in an interactive and educational setting.

The big picture comes courtesy of the observatory's three high-powered telescopes, which grant Chabot with its domed silhouette and provide visitors a privileged view of the stars during daytime and evening viewings. Things narrow in scope once you enter the museum, where interactive exhibits zero in on the smaller curiosities of space and Earth's relationship to it. The aforementioned space toilet is a part of the Beyond Blastoff exhibit, where spacesuits, space gear, and space food paint a picture of an astronaut's day-to-day life. One Giant Leap: A Moon Odyssey gives visitors another taste of space exploration, this time by putting them behind the controls of the original Mercury space capsule, then puts them face to face with a 3.3-billion-year-old moon rock collected during the Apollo 15 mission. Weather becomes more than something to curse at for canceling the ball game or flooding a meteorologist's basement once visitors enter Bill Nye's Climate Lab. There, kids tasked with saving the Earth from storms and melting ice sheets are too busy developing top-secret energy-saving devices to realize they might be learning something.

Chabot Space & Science Center also features shows such as LaserMania, a classic-rock-fueled spectacle where light and sound, a 360-degree cocoon of cutting-edge laser lights set to music by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and U2, specifically, team up for an explosive sensory experience
