We watched the "The mystery of life" show - we paid 6 euro -good that we bring headphones ,if not you are paying 1 euro more for headphones.The quality of the English translation... More

Having visited the London Planetarium in Greenwich with the kids in 2014, we were very excited to visit the Athens Planetarium and watch a showing of the magic reef in the dome. We bought the tickets on-line so that we wouldn't be disappointed. On-street parking was not easy, but fortunately there are open parking lots in the area (at a... More

What I liked best was the very inclined huge screen coming up to our heads, the suitable seats for viewing upwards and the 3D like feeling of watching movies about space, earth and important living beings and constructions. Next to the cinema there is a gadget shop with science items and tos. Upstairs there is a permanent interactive science experiments... More

We went to this place which is actually far from the city center. There werent too many people and we asked them if the show is in English. They asked us to buy headsets which had English version. When the show finally started, we were completely disappointed as the show was in Greek and it was so loud that one... More

This place is very special to me, my father used to take me there when I was a kid twice a week. Those years Athens Planetarium was one of 5 in the world that owned the old analogue planetary projection machine. Evgenides presented this to the Greek people. It was a fascinating place to all kids. Recently I took my... More

I can't find words to describe my experience in planetarium in Athens. First time when I went with my boyfriend, we wanted to see just one projection. And then we stayed for all of them! I will start with the most important part - projections. Most of them are perfectly balanced, and give enough to both people who came just... More
