  • We went to the Planetarium because like our children everything about the universe and in Buenos Aires on vacation took the opportunity to take them. We visited the Planetarium Museum and it was a pleasant surprise. This year he is serving 50 years and has been remodeled and modernized. It has two simulators of the formation of the Earth, an experience of virtual reality visit the planet Mars, two interactives on the planets and several also interactive displays with information about the solar system. To receive the children is Galibot, a friendly robot that gives information about the Museum and also personal... up to sing! Also you can see a small flag Argentina who went to space and pieces of lunar surface given by President Richard Nixon to Argentina. The visit lasts one hour and the super recommend. Carry money in cash because they still do not accept cards.

  • Planetarium very nice on the outside but is in the works that, according to the Guide at the end. A shame because he said the Planetarium is one of the best attractions of the city.

  • If you are a tourist and if you don't speak Spanish, then I would say that this place is not so good for you. You can come here and see many new and interesting things. But you won't understand what's written about those things as they are written in Spanish. And there are few programmes conducted which are also in Spanish. But the good part is, they got a very nice view and the place is peaceful.
  • It is closed doing renovations with no warning or signs. Horrible customer service.
  • Nice exterior. It is closed for refurbishment for the next two months.
  • Amazing experience especially for children! This is one of the few building worldwide devoted to astronomy divulgation with the shape of a planet. ES: Increíble experiencia especialmente para los chicos! Es uno de los pocos edificios en el mundo dedicados a la divulgación astronómica que tiene la forma de un planeta. IT: Bellissima e intensa esperienza principalmente per i bimbi! Questo è uno tra i pochissimi edifici in tutto il mondo adibiti alla divulgazione dell'astronomia che ha la forma di un pianeta.
  • The building is breathtaking when seen at night. The planatorium is crowded always but a nice place to go for Kids.
