Watch colorful projections light up the domed ceiling as the mysteries of the universe reveal themselves to you at Planetarium of Bogota. Opened in 1969 and part of a cultural complex of nine museums, the planetarium educates visitors about the planets and the stars, as well as the physical world around them. Check out the half-hour projection show, in Spanish, at the planetarium's domed theater, then encourage the kids to get hands-on as they explore the museum's interactive displays.

  • Great learning experience for children in elementary and middle school. The dome is big and clean however the presentation is a bit boring and childish due to the speakers/animators. The space museum ...  more »
  • To be the Planetarium of the capital of the country is out of date, only there are about 4 things to see and not very interesting, the only thing that saved half the visit was the dome and that because that day did not show the typical video of stars and planets , but that mostraon uan series mini interesting documentaries. You have discount for 3 age. If they will charge input should improve the place, if it continues as it is should be free. I do not recommend to go there, better visit another place.

  • 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
  • Everything is good but the "stars show" with that clown - nothing to do with the actual stars projection
  • The planetarium of Bogotá is amazing place where activities are dedicated to astronomy, cience, history, culture and technology. The domo and the space museum they are the pleces where there is more programming for any public or astronomy lovers and in the coference nooms science lectores other topics of interest.

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.
