    I went with my kids, who love museums, and it was a very good experience. The entrance to the exhibition is free and is simple but entertaining. The real experience is in the room of projection, which is Yes paid visit. We have had the possibility of going to other planetariums in Europe and this has nothing to envy them regarding this room: very good level, good sound, all excellent. Very recommended

    Nice place for students, even for visitors. There are many improvements finished recently. Here you can see old classrooms (Escuela de Artes y Oficios) 70's buildings (Facultad de Quimica y Biologia) and modern infrastructure, all together in the same place.
