  • A place where you can enjoy the magic and science. Watch the movie, break away from reality for an hour. Here would be even comfortable seating.

  • Very interesting, informative. In the center of the room with the sector faces stuffed puffs, comfortably lie down and look at the "sky". Tickets there for 50 UAH is more expensive than in the rest of the room. More fun to watch with the distant ranges, better seen everything. Nice lounge. The remaining premises Planetarium whether to repair, or simply closed. In the building of the Planetarium still valid school of astronomers for children. Visit the need. Interesting for children and adults. A lot of young people.

  • The stories are interesting, but very short. Would like to see more movies. Recommend choosing puffs instead of chairs, so you can lie down during the session.

  • For the first time in his life in the Planetarium. I almost cried with happiness. Very exciting! Projectors for a lot longer than IMAX. There is also an area with armchair-bags, which is very convenient. There is a possibility to pay for tickets with a credit card. The convenient location. Children and adults will be very interesting.
