They have some interesting lectures, but you need to speak/understand Italian. For popular lectures it is better to book in advance.

One of the oldest and largest planetariums of the world, it has fascinated me each time over the past 70 years. I was there with my grandchildren last year and it was even better than ever. To enjoy it fully, learn our beautiful language!

Nice place especially if you're interested in astronomy and there are events like 'Cinedreams' not to miss! After visiting here you can also pass to Natural History Museum which is just next to it and spend a day full of science ☺️

I've been at Planetario U. Hoepli to introduce my young nephew to astronomy. The special occasion was offered by a funny and interesting dramatization offered by some actors and the Planetarium Director during the Xmas period. The venue is dating back the thirties, with the original rotating wooden chairs. Not to be missed even if you're not an astronomy fan!

I dislike giving bad reviews but sometimes it has to be done. I visited this planetarium last week and it was the longest hour of my life. I have always been fascinated by astronomy but never have I been so bored. For the record, I speak Italian and understood the presentation. What you typically expect from a planetarium is an...

This planetarium is open to adult visitors during the evenings and all presentations were in Italian language. It is located in a large garden and it's worth to go around and relax.

For both adults and children, Italy’s largest Planetarium is a very nice place to visit. It is very well-organized and the information and exhibition presented are very interesting. It’s pretty hard to explain and describe the feeling that one experience in-there, but I can assure that it makes the visitor escape from the quotidian themes and issues, and get into... More

My boyfriend took me there to very nice lecture in darkness about stars and poetry. around two hours we were listening and watching how people were dreaming about far universes. I'm not sure if it's available in English, but if u know Italian, u should visit this place which was actually a first observatory in Milan.

If you wish to spend a different evening, and avoid crowded happy hours or the usual disco pubs, I definitely recommend this place. Located in a beautiful park ( Giardini Indro mondanelli) close by the posh Porta venezia dsitrict) the Planetarium is an amazing place out of time, out of all the frenzy the rush and the noise of the...
