Ibirapuera Planetarium, Sao Paulo

3.8
#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.

  • I chose to go to the Planetarium after seeing some reviews legal here. But I really think I don't understand the proposal. The entry now is charged (U $4.00). But calm, I'd rather pay and have the service to keep the attractions closed for lack of funds. Anyway, very cool. The "movie" we saw would be about new planets. But I found a little editor and without continuity. I found little too didactic. They were just technical information thrown in a video. Definitely missing something. I also think that you could have any "message" that make us reflect.

  • I was in the first session at 1:00 pm aimed at children. The programming is very didactic, the context content for children. Despite being aimed at children the Planetarium was almost packed, meaning the 300 vacancies were almost complete. The free tickets are delivered 1 hour before.

  • A very cool place to know when in Ibirapuera Park, the tickets are free, but it is necessary to pick up tickets 1 hour before advance, recommend.
