Just got off the phone with the Frost Science Center and they are working on the possibility of a behind the scenes tour for us. I should hear back in a couple of days.

Also, if we wanted to drop the planetarium tickets off of our itinerary, the cost would go down to  $19 for adults and $12 for children ages 3 - 11.

So, let me know your thoughts on including the planetarium with the tickets.

Hi Heather

We good with either option. Behind the scenes would be awesome. If they did that probably wouldn't need planetarium

We have been instructed to check in as a group at the membership office in the museum at 10:00 am.  We will meet at 9:45 am outside the entrance and enter together.

Please allow yourself adequate travel time and additional time to park. The estimated travel time from Estero is 2 hours and 15 minutes to give you an idea of how long to allow.
