The show was for a low price of 5€/students and it was absolutely worth it. Not only was the show realised by excellent instruments, the story told is fascinating, informative and fun too! Highly recommendable!

Not only the shows are super realistic, teaching and breathtaking but also you can see live some planets due to cameras mounted on satellites. It is an incredible experience!!!

I absolutely love this place. It´s my favorite planetarium so far. I went with a big group of friends, and the "show" we saw was awesome, it was very well structured and quite interesting. The chairs move and you get to see everything on the...More
