The weekly twilight and star parties are a must do and during the day tours of the large telescopes are incredibly interesting.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Check their website to see the days they offer star parties, and get your tickets in advance. They aren't very expensive and are totally worth it. Bring out your inner nerd and go see the best stars in Texas.
Star parties most Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Book in advance, they often sell out!
