It takes to much to reach Planetarium with public transportation, during summer from 20th July until 10th of August it is closed, videos only after 17.30 and not all the weekdays. For family with children it is a waste of time. We reached it around noon and it was closed for public...only the shop was opened. If you really want... More

This is the best place that you can visit with your children .The technology of the planetarium is very modern and all the shows are remarkable . Also you can visit the permanent science exhibition which is also very interesting. I think that is the most qualitative entertainment that you can give to your kids.

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

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
