  • What made the Planetarium of Bogota so special was the staff. They had a telescope set up outside and were super helpful and interesting in letting us peer through it. The same in the exhibitions...  more »
  • A grand tour of the planets and solar system with interactive exhibits. The presentations (in Spanish) on astrology are brilliant and entertaining. Look out for concerts held regularly at the museum  more »
  • I visites the planetarium alone, assuming to learn about the universe. Regretfully, the main part was a light show to entertain children. So, only visit the planetarium when you need to keep children....  more »

  • The planetarium is very nice. I enjoyed it without kids, the carl zeiss projector is amazing and the museum is very interactive appealing both for adults and children alike. Personal is very attentive and they guide you through the place and the interactive machines.
  • Very nice place, with a lot of information and activities for the visitors. The exhibition could be a little bigger though.
  • 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!
  • 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
