Tycho Brahe Planetarium, Copenhagen

1.7
#5 of 6 in Childrens Museums in Zealand
Observatory Museum
Find the answers to some of the mysteries of space at Tycho Brahe Planetarium. The big dome-shaped screen in the space theater will make you feel like you are part of the movie. Watch IMAX and 3-D movies that can transport you on a journey to the infinite universe, back to the dinosaur era, or below sea level. The planetarium gives a brief introduction to the current night sky before each show. The permanent exhibit on astronomy and space travel features one of the largest pieces of moon rock in the world. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Copenhagen holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Tycho Brahe Planetarium and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • I expected a lot more, so this was a disappointment. The exhibition was small, rather boring, and some things were broken. The movie theater was the only cool thing about this place.  more »

  • I have to say we haven't been to the IMAX (it might be great). The overall main exhibition is very non-interactive and boring especially if you come with the kids. As told before - it is also very dat...  more »

  • Not worth if you don't have the Copenhagen card. The short movie about our galaxy was immersive but the seat can't be leaned backwards, so we can't really enjoy the movie. Movie was in Danish but don't get the headphones (costs kr20), cos you can plug your own earphones in :D
  • The permanent exhibit seemed to be focused on educating kids. The information provided was very basic and did not seem to be able to convey the excitement that a topic such as the universe usually carries with it. The interactive media was clumsily executed and the imax movies were not necessarily space-themed. Good for a quick stroll on a lazy day but nothing for science-enthusiasts. 2 instead of one star for the meteorites and the moon-rock.
  • Good. It was great experience to be here. The 3D DOME IMAX experience is one of its kind. One has option of buying an ear phone for listening to english translation. I suggest, one gets their own earphone. The translation is barely audible due to outside noise. Do not spend additional 20Kr for earphones.
  • We didn't go to one of the shows as we didn't have time, but the exhibit was fun. It is definitely aimed at kids or those unfamiliar with astronomy but that is fine. Worth a look round if nothing else!
  • Low video quality on "IMAX experience ", very small. Description on Copenhagen tourist info is overrated compared with reality. Would maybe be suitable for kids only. It was too expensive for what is offered, It was a waste of time and money of my 24h Copenhagen card.

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
