Athens Planetarium Reviews & Ratings
The new dome is superb. Excellent quality. It doesn't matter if you are child, young or older, everybody should visit the Planetarium!
It’s not close to downtown, although you can get there by bus for 2,80€ round trip. The movie was good, although they ONLY provide English translation. In modern days, a Planetarium like this one should have other languages available. It’s impossible to turn down the volume during the translation. It was so loud that you could hear perfectly with your headphones out of your ears, otherwise it could get annoying. Bring your own headphones as they don’t provide ones for free (1€).
We schlepped all the way over from the Acropoli in the heat and they are closed until 5:30 in the evening. Apparently it is really just a movie theater as we were given a program of the shows (all in Greek, which is fine but might matter to another) and the exhibition halls were closed. Only the cafeteria and gift shop were open. :-/. We tried to research what times it would be open and were given conflicting info about it from the local information guides, the dinosaur programs are only on the weekend, and apparently the schedule on their website must use flash as it wouldn’t load. Even if it had though, I would have assumed the Exhibition Hall would be open, what kind of a planetarium only opens to run films?
Magic in the real world... And you are in the heart of it ...
An unbelievable experience!
