  • 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.
