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

I had just visited the Temple of Olympian Zeus and I checked the tripadvisor android app which indicated that the planetarium was the closest attraction. The address on the app was wrong and it was pretty evident so I asked a lady from the tourist information office who told me that the museum was at a 20 minute walk. It... More

It took most of the morning to research how to get a bus from Syntagma to the planetarium, which didn't come so we caught a cab. They dropped us off there and it was closed. No mention anywhere on the website or anywhere else why. Frustrated, we caught a bus back to our apartment which took the longest route possible.... More

Just saw the IMAX "Mt. Everest|. Excellent presentation. Although dubbed in Greek, understanding the movie was no problem. Only IMAX theater I'm aware of in the Athens area.

The Athens planetarium is a modern building, quite on the edge of the town (about 8 Euros in a cab from the city center). The price for the show (Journey to the Stars) was fair, 5 Euros per person, but for some strange reason, they charged 1 Euro for the idiotic 1 ear earphone - strange, because apparently they don't...
