After having visited the museum for probably half-hour, I was ready to get out and never return. Outdated damaged displays and Danish everywhere, nothing new, nothing big, just a tiny room for a really overpriced ticket. Lockers are not included, and the only fun i had, was playing with Legos at the entrance. Not recomended at all!

What a horrible experience. After going to the awesome maritime museum, zoo, aquarium and other such excellent venues in Copenhagen, my family and I were eager to see what the planetarium had to offer. Well it turns out, it has NOTHING to offer. The planetarium basically consists of one big circular room in the center with some stuff on the... More

Compared to Cosmonova in Stockholm, Sweden, this is a disappointment. I would only go here to see a movie, but even then it's not comparable to what I can get back home at Cosmonova. It was a very hip place when it opened but maybe it needs a facelift now ?

It's too expensive for only one tiny room of outdated statements as an exhibition, that is not interactive at all, and has nothing interesting to see, you can even cross it in less than 5 minutes. Only in Danish!!!! The movies are not better than any documentary in youtube and the service in general is terrible.

I went there with a friend last weekend and all i can say is that it was quite bad - no translations in English of the exhibits and the film(Hubble telescope) and the presentation weren't that great as the Danish voice was loud and the English through the headphones was weak - I ended up falling asleep midway. Just skip... More

I think that this place is geared towards classes of Danish school kids on an outing. Nothing wrong with that, but it's not really a highlight for foreign tourists. Worth a look in if you are in the area and killing time but other than that I wouldn't bother.

There was a tiny exhibit with most items broken. The displays in Danish with a bit of paper translating only a few of them. It is essentially a cinema now so wouldn't bother going unless catching a movie

Worth visiting but not more than once. It had collection of space equipment models, rocks collection etc. School boys may like it. I saw the movie based on dinosaurs and I really liked the globe based 3-D screen. But the movie was in danish language. Headsets were provided for translation but did not work at all.

The one time I don't read a Tripadvisor review before I go to somewhere it turns out to be a massive let down. The exhibition is tiny, the Imax has films that aren't anything to do with space, they are on the Galapagos and D-Day :S Glad I got in free with my Copenhagen Card or I would have been... More

Where is the planetarium? Comprised of 2 IMAX screens and a small collection of space equipment models and exhibits - really as a lobby for the IMAX screens. Oddly we saw a D-Day movie at the planetarium. The movie was good. Mostly science fair quality, and mostly American artifacts otherwise. Seems to be mainly for school groups.
