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...

If you want to know more about the stars you cannot miss the opportunity to visit a real planetarium. It is really old (and this is part of his beauty). There are lot of conferences for both kids and adults. Both my daughters (5 and 7) loves it and wanted to visit again and again...

I took my 10 year old daughter and her friends to a 1 hour "show" inside the dome and mistakenly expected something along the lines of the mind blowing experience to the London equivalent... BUT instead of glorious lazer choreography set to symphonic sounds on padded armchairs with comfy headrests we struggled to keep awake (despite hard wooden benches) whilst... More

the house got more of my attention than the aquarium itself. the sculpture of neptune, the hippo fountain with large goldfishes, the tanks are nicely kept and interesting specially for kids, most of the nemo heros are there. the surrounding park is also great. the visit is short but it allows to see more of milano or enjoy one of...
