    It is amazing how low-income people who work there make this a wonderful place. When you walk you find Galileo himself and other characters that teach you science with some humor. After this, you enter the dome to know the constellations, then comes the interactive museum tour and at all stages you always meet people of high degree of knowledge ready to resolve your concerns. Super recommended to take the kids and leave it to chop them the science bug.

    A small museum and a dome cinema where you receive information mostly about constellations. I was expecting more. Especially the dome could have been used for a much more interesting display. A bit disappointing in the end.

    Everytime I go I feel that it gets better. Is not a big place, but there is plenty of stuff to be learned. It takes about one afternoon to visit the whole place and is not expensive. The restaurant is also good

    Everything is good but the "stars show" with that clown - nothing to do with the actual stars projection

    Beautiful place to see, I love to see the part of the stars and the sky is marvelous, the place is quiet and makes me want to think and write about all the great that humanity has to discover around the universe.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
