It's a nice place to get to know more about space and cosmos. It has an amazing astrophotographies
Rated 4 stars for the nostalgia from coming here as a kid, its a small museum, yes, is it old, perhaps, but the efforts into revamping it don't go unnoticed, hoping they reopen the mars exhibition soon and give props to my man Elon. The display shows in the planetarium's dome never cease to amaze me and its 3D rendidition of the universe blew my mind. As a final suggestion, I read in the end credits Neil degrasse Tyson was the narrator for the original, what a waste of talent it was to translate him. Planetariums manager, put some captions and let his soothing voice do the rest ;)
If you arrive at the rear of the building, you'll see a crazy concrete climbing wall
It's an okay place if you like planets and cosmology but to be honest, they need to revamp the entire place. Everything is old and belongs to the 90s. The planetarium itself is ok but the quality is low. I have been to the planetarium in Washington DC and this place cannot even begin to compete with that one. Also, it's a bit far from the metro stops. As a space fan, I'm happy I went there but don't think I'll go back again.
The official website says the place is still close. Reopening maybe after the summer 2017
