Ibirapuera Planetarium, Sao Paulo

(3.8/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • I found the presentation very complex for children. JA fii in other similar spaces and think they exploit very badly ... There should be other spaces, some books ... Would not come back.

  • I went with my family to the Planetarium of Ibiraquera in 2/12/2017 day, Sunday, at 12:00 noon session, you should arrive with 1 hour in advance to get the tickets. If late, they also distribute the remaining tickets just before the start of the session. Children under 5 years are not included and there is a special session at 10:00 for children. I liked the Organization and great staff and even planetary environment. All very clean and comfortable. Just a few broken chairs. Plan your parking in advance. Recommend the tour.

  • Free admission, tickets are distributed 1 hour before the session starts. The first session of the day is devoted to the kids and the last with images in ' real time ' from the sky (this is pretty full, better anticipate to get ticket) is educational and fun at the same time, very interesting for those who like to learn about the stars, planets, comets, universe and everything.
