Flandrau Science Center University of Arizona July 2017

My wife recently bought a Groupon membership to the Flandrau Science Center on the University of Arizona. On a day in Tucson when the temperature was well over 100 degrees and my son was bouncing off the walls; we decided to activate our membership.  What we found were over a dozen games and puzzles related to science and the solar system, a gem and mineral collection and planetarium with 10 different shows. The games and activities are engaging for all ages. Since our first visit we have been back four times. Each time we have seen a  different planetarium show with Mysteries of the Unseen World and Asteroid Mission Extreme among our favorites.

If you go to the Flandrau Science Center without a membership it costs $16 per adult and $12 for kids as well as military members and senior citizens. Each admission includes one planetarium show.
