Ibirapuera Planetarium, Sao Paulo

3.9
#1 of 19 in Childrens Museums in State of Sao Paulo
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.

    As the demand for big, eh, inform planning of schedules and go at least 1 hour before, because it has always queue. After the people in there we already feel in another plane in the sky. The session begins and there is the beginning of a wonderful adventure, the journey through the universe. We were so overwhelmed that we never saw the clock. Gave it when finished.

    Don't waste your time. Only photos taken at the door. Ride is the Park! A shame, because it never works and must cost a fortune to public coffers. ABSURD!!!!!

    Face more than 2 hours in queues, but it was worth it. The cast is great. The educational content is very well chosen: they go back since the mythology to elucidate the explanations of the constellations to the latest articles from the latest findings. I was positively surprised with the wealth of details, the cosmos on specific dates. Well worth to go and bring the kids! Recommend!
