  • A very interesting cultural space, the projection in the dome we liked a lot. The staff is excellent, they provide the necessary explanations. The Planetarium is situated a few steps from the metro station, explore the Park and the Botanical Garden. It is worth visiting it.

  • A cosmopolitan and world city should have a decent Planetarium and this meets that condition. Shows at the dome every hour and good exhibitions at other levels and an excellent location (there are more things that make close) makes this place a must visit

  • The best thing is the Dome where they spend different documentaries at different times (you can only enter one) and the staff explains a bit what is going to be. Other displays were good although I thought would have more timely information of the planets and constellations. They have a shop of souvenirs with basic items, t-shirts were not of my taste, and I was buying a few postcards, had only a model.
