  • A must-visit place when in Bandung. Cheap ticket with invaluable experiences. The visitors get the chance to see Zeiss telescope, the biggest telescope of Bosscha Observatory. They also have a professional guide and they're very welcome to answer all kinds of questions concerning astronomy.

  • Bagi anak taun 90an pasti inget banget tempat yang masuk di film sherina ini sebagai tempat observasi antariksa yang keren. Dibawah pengelolaan ITB dari awal pembangunannya tahun 1923 Bosscha Observatory sampe sekarang masih digunakan untuk penelitian dan pemantauan dalam spesifik bidang astronomi.

  • This place also exists in Bandung, maybe those who have watched Petualangan Sherina must know. This place is great for children's education, there are also giant binoculars but only on certain days this binoculars can be used. The place is also very cool

  • If you want to visit Boscha, you have to come before 10 a.m. Because they don't accept visitors, unless you already booking the schedule for study tour. . If you want to see stars with telescope in the middle of the night, make sure you know the schedule. Always check on Google or their website first. . I'm very happy to be here. Remind me when about Petualangan Sherina Movie
