Interesting place. You can have an idea about the universe. Good accessibility for disable people, less in the main attraction, where the wheelchair user need to stay in the aisle. There is free parking and close parking near.

It's a great place, and a great experience. But you can go to other things in Rio first, like Corcovado, Pão de açucar..

With a variety of shows and a nice hands on museum, the planetarium is a good choice when the weather is not so inviting.
