The museum's busiest weeks are during school break times in December, February and April, so the museum steps it up, offering activities for children Tuesday through Friday and extending the planetarium schedule to four shows a day.
Breslin said visiting the museum is extremely economical for a family. Admission costs $5 and includes all exhibits and the day's activity. Planetarium shows cost just an additional $2.50. It beats taking your children to a movie that costs nearly $10 and usually only entertains one age group.
The model train exhibit is on display through Jan. 15, and the 3-D exhibit is on display through Jan. 12. For information, visit www.schenectadymuseum.org or call 382-7890. ""
