Burke Baker Planetarium at the Houston Museum of Natural Science

City: Houston, TX

Why you should visit: First opened in 1964, the Burke Baker Planetarium is the same dome theater that's used to train NASA Space Shuttle astronauts in identifying starfields. The computerized SkySkan Digital Sky projector is the most advanced in the world, so you're sure to see the latest in planetarium technology.
