Observatory
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.

  • I was in a section of Saturday and to my surprise it was directed more to the child audience. It didn't take the magnitude of the show, on the contrary, was illustrative, educational, very easy to understand because the language is very well prepared. Don't miss, worth it.

  • The Planetarium which is located within the parque Ibirapuera in São Paulo is very cool. You'll see the night sky of São Paulo that today it is not possible to see, on pollution and other factors caused by man. There entederá how it works, in a general way, the Galaxy and stars, not to mention the incredible experience you will have. On weekends and holidays the session will be the 10:00, 12:00, and 3:00 pm 5:00 pm. Passwords are distruíbas 1:00 before each session and is free. Everybody had to see this.

  • In February, the Carnival holiday tried to make a visit to the Planetarium. A week before, entered the site to gather information to timetables. To my surprise, the Planetarium was closed throughout the holiday. Many people just like me, disappointed because that's just the holidays that people have the opportunity of leisure. Also consult the site and there was no information. There was a sign stuck in the front door stating that would be closed during the holiday.
