Sir Richard Branson can step aside, because sending your mini-Galileo to the Milky Way has never been easier.

Hayden Planetarium – New York City, Ny

Any planetarium that calls Neil deGrasse Tyson its director is worth mentioning. The Hayden Planetarium is located at the center of the Rose Center for Space and Earth, within the American Museum of Natural History. It seats 429 people, and displays a crazy view of the planets, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. Known as the Digital Universe Atlas (a fancy way of saying a map of the cosmos managed by professional stargazers and other organizations like NASA), the current exhibit, Dark Universe, celebrates the most awesome and recent discoveries in deep space.
