Sir Richard Branson can step aside, because sending your mini-Galileo to the Milky Way has never been easier. From world-renowned institutions to intimate space settings, budding stargazers can reach the outer limits of the galaxy without leaving Planet Earth. Flip through the gallery below for nine spots worthy of your cosmos-crazed kiddo.

ExploraDome – Minneapolis, Mn

You can expect an intimate space adventure in the ExploraDome at Bell Museum of Natural History. With only 15 “lay-down” seats in the University of Minnesota planetarium, visitors are invited to relax on the carpeted floor and prep for a journey to the edge of the known universe. Head’s up parents; the ExploraDome Theater tickets are sold separately from museum admission.

Insider Tip: Look for a brand-new planetarium when the Bell Museum re-opens at a new location in 2018!
