Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Despite I went with two grown up sons, the story they presented with the lessons about the sky were great! Planning to go with the grandsons. 
  • Recommend to everyone! Analyze the stars for this Simulator is wonderful, the kids love it, is in fact a great ride!

  • It's a delight to see the sky of São Paulo, unclouded, without the interference of light. The explanations of astronomer are great and very clear, and he still makes available for questions (and was very attentive with children). The downside is the distribution of passwords in the input, you spend a lot of time in the queue, no need. Could charge a small value and you purchase over the internet.
