  • It's nice, for a family plan or with children. It has good facilities, the slightly dangerous surroundings, but nothing more.

  • It is an interesting site, although a bit full, but worth the visit and attend the nocturnal projections.

  • Disappointing experience. We got to see the dome (where the projection happens) before deciding to buy the tickets. We saw the room and the projector and were impressed. Even though we were expecting the place to be mainly for children, it was still very disappointing. The quality of the projection is.. You have better visibility under water without goggles. The narrators talk super childish and they only show you a few different foggy planets and focus mainly on the constellations.
  • It has a lot of activities for all ages and different cultural aspects, not only space! They use thw domo to show different kind of proyections like musicals with lasers. It is great! Highly recommended!
  • 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
  • Is a beautiful place..
