Ibirapuera Planetarium, Sao Paulo

3.8
#1 of 18 in Childrens Museums in State of Sao Paulo
Observatory Museum
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.
