A Planetarium Hidden On The Campus Of The University Of Southern Maine Charges Just $5 For Most Of Their Events

With smart phones and web access just about everywhere, it can be hard to find a way to entertain kids in a way that doesn’t involve an app, a video game or something else that requires putting a face into a phone. And, if it keeps them entertained for free, might as well go for it. But, with a little effort you can find things that are great for families without having to break the bank. Best of all, this attraction is great for kids of all ages! Psst…that means you!
