A quick visit to check out the planetarium. The exhibition is quite small, you’ll go through it all in 30 minutes. There is a lot of 3D movies that can be seen. We saw just one which vas enough. An OK place to pop into if you want to do something else than shopping and have limited time. Better to... More

What a waste of time and money! Only one level of so called exhibits which was not informative. The floor was full of popcorns but no staff bothered to clean it up. There were also stains from people spilling drinks. The 3D show was not in English but no one told me that beforehand. The show has nothing to do... More

It seems most reviewers were not aware what to expect and were disappointed. I had read the website so knew there was a small museum and IMAX theatre. Every IMAX show has a £D space film first which I thought was excellent. Bring your own earphones for english narration, or they sell for 20kr. We watched an IMAX movie about... More

I should have read the other Trip Advisor reviews before going and saved time and money. This was truly bad, uninformative, unimaginative, a waiting room for the IMAX cinema. Read Wikipedia if you want to learn about Tycho Brahe. Go to London planetarium, Leicester Space Centre or Cite d'Espace Toulouse for great space and astronomy days out.

It is located at Vesterport, you can get there by train, bus, metro. A bit out of the city center, nevertheless public transport provides an easy access. There is an exhibition and you can watch 3D films in every half an hour. Take your earphones if you do not speak Danish or you can buy them for 20 DK /pair.... More

Neglected, empty, in Danish, expensive and no redeeming qualities. There was a 40 minute wait until the next movie (About D-Day, why?!) but did not wait around. Avoid.

We attended here with our 6 and 4 year old today. We were all excited about going to see all about the planets etc. It was pretty expensive and it was a shame as all the exhibits were in Danish so we couldn't read a lot about it. The iMax theatre was good as there was a show about the... More

Went here expecting to see "planets" & "stars" etc but was disappointed to find the movie was about D-Day! There was a show about the planets later that week so we had to go back. Take you own head phones if you want to hear in English or you will have to buy a pair. The show was very goo.

Unless you've got a Copenhagen card and can therefore get in free, just don't bother. The whole place has an air of neglect about it, some of the exhibits were broken and it was all a bit grim really.

OK, so I had a "Copenhagen Card" and did not have to pay to enter, even so this was a disappointment. This is really an IMAX theater with a small display area which looks at our solar system and space flights. Most of the interactive screens were in Danish only. Only in the "main" dome was there some English language.... More
