The Planetarium Projector and Science Museum in Big Bear Lake, California definitely warrants a spot on your potential vacation list. Owner/outer space-lover Owen Phairis can proudly boast that he has the largest collection of planetarium projectors in the world. These special contraptions were rescued by Phairis himself from old planetariums. He has given them a new life and a new purpose underneath a refurbished military parachute in a nondescript building. Here, they bring the stars to you, and even perform electrical light shows.
