First of all, considering the name "Planetarium", I was expecting to participate to a presentation of the universe. Instead of this, there is just a set of movies you can watch being played on the dome. Despite that, we decided to watch a movie and only after we paid, they told us that the movies are actually in greek and... More

At the planetarium I enjoyed a film on how mankind explored the Moon, leaving open perspective on what is about to happen in the future. The scientific exhibition nearby is also a very interesting experience for both adults and children.

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

Next to the cinema there is a gadget shop with science items and tos. Upstairs there is a permanent interactive science experiments... More

When the show finally started, we were completely disappointed as the show was in Greek and it was so loud that one... More
