According to The Advocate, the building that once housed the Lafayette Science Museum and Planetarium is set to be razed on December 4, 2017.

The Lafayette Memories  Facebook post features several comments with people sharing fond memories of the facility:

I always thought that the building was way cool, and way ahead of its time.  (And, I might have kissed a girl in the "echo circle".)

Having been sitting dormant and neglected for so many years the building is beyond salvageable, according to officials.

No need to worry, though, the NEW science museum and planetarium are awesome!

What are your memories of the old Planetarium and Science Museum?
