  • The Buenos Aires Planetarium is in a park that we call Bosques de Palermo. You have to go a day that doesn't rain although the Planetarium of can visit at any time. It has shows and a museum. I have to pay input but it is not expensive. It is important to check the days and times and remove entries a while before, because there may be a queue.

  • I went to visit the Planetarium and when I got there the building was with sidings for reform, seemed more than both the building as the area around were very careful.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
