It's a nice experience and not that expensive to be drowned in images on this huge screen. I saw ''born to be wild'' (am aware 1 elephant per 15 minutes is killed nowadays) it makes you very emotional to live in the movie. It feels like you are really in th emovie, instead of just watching it.

I was glad we finally went over here and watched a movie. A very nice movie also. The south pacific, a movie about the underwater world of Papua. My children of 4 and 6 also loved it. Seeing it on such a big screen really makes an impression. The movie lasted for only 40 minutes. Also the little store inside... More

We saw the Jerusalem film. The picture was excellent, although the tall buildings did curve with the screen at times. But for the most part it was an exellent picture. The choices are limited for what shows and times are available. The summer hours are a bit extended so you do have the option to see some shows a bit... More

It is a nice place to go with family to spend some time and enjoy fantastic 3D enviroment. The problem starts with timetable and repertoire. Omniversum is usually closed after 5 p.m. so it is no chance for nice evening. The same movies selection that goes on and on (like for 2 years) made this place out of my “entertainment”... More

The omniversum is a great place to take kids for a few hours to watch great documentaries. The positives are that the IMAX experience is wonderful if you and the kids have never seen it before. The negative is that at 10.50 € and an additional 1.20 € for the headphones (if you don't understand Dutch) it's expensive for a... More

I have seen a lot of movies in omniversum, I think Hubble is the best. It feels like you are actually traveling through space. I recommend to book up front for the best seats.

For me this i s the original widescreen cinema, saw more than ten great documentaries here. You practically lay back in a good chair and fly or dive into another world. Really mindblowing, if you experience it for the first time. Some people get seasic but thats not Omniversums fault ofcourse...

First visit to the Omniversum IMAX with my youngest daughter to see Dolphins. Nice place with free parking for 2 hrs, two shops for refreshments and gifts (not too expensive) and a great IMAX EXPERIENCE. Shows are a bit expensive (10.50 for an adult for, in effect, a 45 minute film but overall a really nice way to spend a... More

If it rains during your trip to Holland (and it probably will if you stay longer than a week) this is a great place to go with the kids. The Imax movies give you a feeling as if you're in the movie yourself. A bit scary for younger kids at times. Especially if fish come swimming straight at them. But,... More
