  • There are only 3 centers of studies of cosmic particles in the world, so it is great to be able to visit one. The interactive room while it explains very well the origin and the purpose of the facilities I think it would be more interesting if you take with guide who could solve doubts and questions. It could also be something about the results of the studies carried out there.

  • For a self-guided visit we can know this project. Interesting Museum, with good signage and interactive modules

  • Explanations about the essence of cosmic rays and the importance of his study are not very expressed. It is a self-guided tour that does not differ from a good documentary

  • Great place. Amazing science being done in the observatory. A fantastic opportunity to learn more about the biggest cosmic ray observatory in the world!
  • A super cool place to learn about how the scientists are gaining more information about our solar system. Also has free Wi-fi!
  • Because.... :D
  • Excellent venue for scientific research. To know more about some things that you never read in your life, except to be a theoretical physicist.

  • The truth that I stayed with little flavor. A "tour" is a single room with poster, display cabinets, sheets etc. However to my little interactive pleasure. I went with the idea that since it is an Observatory, something more real, understanding or dig deeper into what is extremely interesting to observe. I hope to make improvements in this aspect.
