    We went to the location, and not go in because I was banned for reform. The people who indicated they did not know. I was pretty upset to go to get to know a place that was a dream.

    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.

    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.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires
