Ibirapuera Planetarium, Sao Paulo
(3.7/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
With a building shaped like a flying saucer and a 20-meter (66-foot) dome encasing a Zeiss projector, Ibirapuera Planetarium offers entertainment and education all in one spot. The German projection machine housed inside shows the sky above São Paulo from dusk to dawn. Check out at least one of these projection shows and hear a professional astronomer explain the most famous stars and constellations, as well as the movements of the Earth and other planets. Originally opened in the 1950s, this was the very first planetarium in the Southern Hemisphere. After extensive renovations and improvements, it reopened in 2006. The planetarium is located in the Ibirapuera Park, one of the largest city parks in all of Latin America.

  • An excellent public equipment. Out of months of vacation, you can visit it on weekends and holidays. There is enough demand, so it is worth getting in advance to schedule the session of interest. In the last week of the month projection is a "live" from the sky. They project the sky that day, and the simulation as the advance of time.

  • This beautiful! The kids loved it! Every time of year a different visit because the sky is referring to the night of day visited. The program can and should be repeated many times. Not to be missed

  • I've never been, I like too much. A very dynamic, very explanatory and organized. I didn't think it was so cool. The queue is a little messed up, but it's part. There are people trying to organize outside. As everywhere, there is a lack of staff. But those who were there struggled. The only caveat is be a demand greater than the Planetarium can meet.
